Family Dinner Project

July 15, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

You’re Invited


Midwest Youth Services and The Family Dinner Project are thrilled to invite you and your family to a Community Dinner at Central Christian Church at 359 W. College Ave on July 15, 2022, from

5:30 – 7:30 pm!


Research shows what parents have known for a long time: Sharing family meals is good for the spirit, brain, and health of the entire family.  The benefits of family meals include better academic performance, higher self-esteem, and a greater sense of resilience.  In addition, children who eat dinner with their families have a lower risk of substance abuse as well as depression!


At the Community Dinner, families will have time to make part of the meal at their tables. Before eating our dinner, we will enjoy some games and conversation. We are looking forward to getting to know each other, having fun, and sharing various tools to improve our family meals. You will also receive some items to take home with you!


If you and your family are interested in joining us for a night of food, fun, and conversation, please contact Michele Fernandez at 217-245-6000 by June 22nd.


Space is limited so we look forward to hearing from you soon! We hope to see you there!
