Family Meals Months Facts
 
Lufkin, TX (August 31, 2018) - September is National Family Meals Month,™ an industry-wide movement to raise awareness about the benefits of frequent family meals. Brookshire Brothers has joined the initiative to encourage families to spend more time this month enjoying a meal together. In support, customers will enjoy special savings on ready-to-cook options and grab-n-go solutions all month long, as well as special deals and recipes every week. We’re bringing value and ease to family meal times because we believe FAMILY MEALS MATTER.

    • People who eat most the most home-cooked meals eat healthier and consume about 130 fewer calories daily, on average, compared to people who cook less or not at all. 
Raise Your Mitt to Commit 
To get the month started, Brookshire Brothers and its employee-owners across Texas and Louisiana raised their mitts to commit to one more family meal at home. You, too, can raise your oven mitt to commit to making more memories around the kitchen table with those you love. Make it official, and shareable, by posting a selfie wearing your favorite oven mitt with the hashtag #familymealsmonth #brookshirebrothers.
