Dine In with FACS on December 3

We wanted to pass on the following invitation from AAFCS...

Dear Minnesota Professionals,! !

As announced at the AAFCS Affiliate Leadership Workshop this month, AAFCS is launching the first annual Family & Consumer Sciences Day!!

The theme is “Dining In” for Healthy Families, and the goal of the campaign is to encourage 200,000 families to make and eat a healthy meal together.  December 3rd was chosen as Family & Consumer Sciences Day to honor family and consumer sciences pioneer and AAFCS founder Ellen Swallow Richards (December 3rd is her birthday).  Many activities are planned for that day, including conducting live interviews with family meal-related experts.

To reach our goal of 200,000 families, we need the engagement of our affiliates!  We know that some of you have already “taken flight” with ideas and are implementing actions.  Wonderful!!  We’ve developed a Family & Consumer Sciences website with tools to participate in the campaign, including specific ideas for affiliates and related organizations.

Family & Consumer Sciences Day is also an opportunity to showcase the important work of your affiliate and members—think about ways your affiliate can increase the visibility of our field!

If you’re ready to commit to “Dining In” on December 3rd, please complete the form now!  The interactive map (updated daily) will be a visual clue as to the activity level geographically.
 We look forward to working with you on this campaign and reaching our “Dining In” goal of 200,000!  If you have any questions about the campaign, please email Gwynn Mason, AAFCS communications director, at

Thanks in advance for your promotion of Family & Consumer Sciences Day and “Dining In”!

Warm regards,
