Families sit down to dinner

M&M Meat Shops is encouraging Canadians to enjoy traditional family dinners.

In times of busy, challenging lives, M&M Meat Shops is encouraging Canadians to enjoy traditional family dinners.

The company’s National Family Dinner Night presents a valuable opportunity to interact, strengthen relationships and affirm the value of each family member.

Each year the company urges every Canadians sitting down to dinner Sept. 20 to register their participation online at www.nationalfamilydinnernight.com to demonstrate the significance of getting together with family and friends.

Everyone who registers is automatically entered for a chance to win $500 in M&M gift cards.

The event has gained support across the country, raising more than $23.1 million for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada.

Incidences of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis rank among the highest in the world. There is no known cause or cure, and the number of cases continues to grow.

The website also has a link to make donations to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada.
