​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Join Us #AtTheTable!

Studies show that eating dinner together as a family can ​provide numerous benefits for children, including higher self-esteem and better communication with their parents. Eating together offers families a time to talk, which promotes closeness, trust, and c​omfort. But dinnertime needs to become a regular habit in order to sustain those benefits, and that means getting them used to it early on. Get started by taking our #AtTheTable Challenge, a weeklong commitment of sharing meals together as a family. We've put together a fun activity to help make dinnertime fun, and we hope you'll share your #AtTheTable successes with us on social media!

How Boys Town does #AtTheTable

Living with up to seven other boys or girls in a Boys Town Family Home is unlike anything most people have ever experienced, especially at meal time. For many youth, a family​ dinner was something they never experience growing up. Here, they not only sit down to eat, they also help plan and prepare the meals, which teaches them skills they’ll use for the rest of​ their lives.
