Around The Table makes family dinner time easier
We understand our lives are busy and most parents feel exhausted by the time it gets to dinner.
Shopping, deciding what to cook, preparing the meal and setting the table, can all seem overwhelming by the end of a long day.
Because our lifestyles are so busy, families are moving away from eating meals together at the table, although 3 in 4 Australians still believe that dinner time is the greatest family connector*.
We are committed to driving family connections, by empowering families with the resources and strategies to enjoy re-connecting at dinnertime.
We do this by:
CONNECTING FAMILIES - ACTIVITY CARDS
Screens and other distractions have crept into our mealtimes and around half of Australian families are eating dinner in front of the TV **. Our focus is to offer engaging alternatives so families can drive deeper connections around this premium engagement point, mealtimes.
Our unique Activity Cards are more than conversation starters, written by experts the games and questions are designed to drive open communication and an atmosphere of enjoyment at the dinner table. Conversations that matter.
THE GIFT OF TIME - FAMILY MEALS (COMING SOON)
Shopping, food preparation, and even deciding what to eat – uses valuable family time and can feel overwhelming at the end of a long day.
We give you back valuable moments by delivering family meals to your door - cooked and ready to enjoy in less than 15 minutes. So you can focus on those around your table, not preparing what is on it. Family matters.
INFORMATION - THE BENEFITS OF FAMILY DINNERS
With the number of families eating together declining, our mission is to share with parents the reasons to make a change to their evening routine or make the most from their meal times.
We provide information leaflets to increase awareness of the benefits associated with family dinners to help families understand the long term implications of skipping family meals. Family dinners matter.
FUNDRAISING - DONATING TO SCHOOLS & COMMUNITY GROUPS
We believe that schools and community groups play a vital role in supporting families back to the table. Likewise the benefits associated with regular family table dining will have a flow on effect to those groups. A win-win situation.
To show our appreciation we support schools and community groups by donating to those who advocate family dinner times. Fundraising that matters.
