Meaningful Meals

Kids who have meals with their family on a regular basis are less likely to engage in risky behaviors, including substance use. The Meaningful Meals campaign resources help spread this hopeful message and build the feasibility for families to have more meaningful meals. Presentation and informational materials are available and include informational postcards, handouts, conversation cards, and an Unplugged box activity.
