Celebrate the Eighth Annual M&M Meat Shops National Family Dinner Night
on September 20, 2012
TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - On Thursday, September 20, 2012, M&M
Meat Shops will once again step up to the plate and encourage Canadians
to enjoy the tradition of the family dinner. Canadians' lives have
never been busier; setting aside quality time for family is a
challenge, however, the importance of family dinners reaches far beyond
simply sharing a meal together. Gathering together around the dinner
table presents a valuable opportunity to interact, strengthen
relationships and affirm the value of each family member.
M&M Meat Shops' National Family Dinner Night has been bringing Canadian
families closer together for the past seven years by recognizing the
importance of sharing a meal with family and friends. This annual event
has gained tremendous support from families, community leaders and
dignitaries across the country, and has contributed to the more than
23.1 million dollars M&M Meat Shops has raised for the Crohn's and
Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC).
