Mission: To get families to unplug from technology and connect with family over dinner.
Facts: Regular family dinners have been shown to significantly improve your children’s vocabulary, resilience, and self-esteem while decreasing their likelihood of eating disorders, substance abuse, and other risky behaviors.
How It Works: Your family of four gets a healthy, discounted dinner for four and a family game for $30 per night. The Family Facetime project wants to make it easier for you to develop the family dinner habit. You also get a basket for everyone’s devices so you can have a fun, technology-free night.
