So what exactly is National Sunday Supper Month? This is commemorated during the month of January. Once upon a time, families used to gather for Sunday supper. They’d talk, share stories and listen to what their loved ones had to say. It was a meaningful experience that has since started to lose favor. It was about having a weekly chat at the family dinner table. Now, there is a supper movement that’s determined to bring back Sunday supper, inspiring families to actually sit down and eat together. As a result, National Sunday Supper Month was born.
When was the last time you sat down with your entire family? Can you really still call yours a family table? The Supper Movement and National Sunday Supper Month are trying to bring back the family meal and the concept of dinners with family.
Simply put, this supper pledge states that you will commit to sit down to dinner at the family table at least once a week. It doesn’t have to necessarily be on a Sunday, just at least one day during the week when you can create amazing supper recipes and reap the emotional benefits of having delicious food with the ones you love.
