Families,

 

This year, consider making the MLUC All-Church Potluck on 2nd Saturdays one of your family meals.

 

Since 2003, Columbia University National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) has found connections between the health of family relationships and the frequency of family meals. Teens whose families had mealtimes together reported they are more likely to seek parental support & confide in either or both parents. Teens who dined more frequently with their family reported less stress than teens who had two or less weekly family meals. Teens who dined 5-7 times per week were twice as likely to receive ‘A’s in school and less likely to use tobacco, marijuana, and alcohol (CASA 2003-2012).

 

Lets make family mealtime a regular practice at MLUC.

 

RSVP and let us know what you'll bring on May 11.
