The President's Choice Eat Together Day Encourages Shared Meals

President's Choice has launched Eat Together Day in an effort to bring more Canadians to the dinner table and to help them live happier and healthier lives.

After a successful launch of its Eat Together film -- an inspiring, feel-good short film where an apartment community is brought together through food -- PC decided to go one step further. On June 29th, PC will host the first Eat Together Day to encourage Canadians to connect through food. PC Chairman and CEO Galen G. Weston says, "On June 29th, Eat Together Day, we challenge Canadians to imagine the impact we could have if, just a little more often, we took the time to eat together."

In a survey conducted by PC, it was found that 93% of Canadians agree that children grow up happier and healthier when families eat together, while 78% of Canadians believe we see each other as equals when we eat together.

On June 29th, Loblaw grocery stores will be hosting a community BBQ in honor of the first Eat Together Day
