Dinner is a time to relax, recharge, laugh, tell stories and catch up on the day’s ups and downs, while developing a sense of who we are as a family.  Family meals provide a meaningful opportunity for family members to spend time together and enjoy one another’s company in a relaxed setting.  Few experiences offer such a wide range of benefits through such a simple activity.

We’ve all heard it for years: sharing family dinner is good for the spirit, the brain and for overall health.  In addition to lower risk of obesity, substance abuse, teen pregnancy and eating disorders in children, studies also link family meals to better academic performance and a lower risk for depression.  New research shows the more family dinners you have per week, the more benefit you’ll see.

Family dinners provide a sense of unity and identity.  They become a vehicle for carrying on valued family traditions.  They furnish a means for daily communication and strengthening family connections.

The Wandering Gourmet believes the “real” value of sharing family meals cannot be overstated.  Because of this, we are offering a 5% discount for those families who choose family-size containers.  Our hope is that you make family dinner a given, the punctuation mark at the end of each day, absolute and non-negotiable.

*Please mention the Family-Centered Dinner page when scheduling services to save 5%.
