NATIONAL SUNDAY SUPPER DAY
National Sunday Supper Day encourages families to gather around the table, enjoy a meal and a conversation together each year on the second Sunday in January.
Sunday Supper starts off as one day a week and soon becomes a way of life. – Sunday Supper Movement
These days families are busy with after-school activities, jobs, and homework. Sunday supper has been a disappearing tradition around the country and the Sunday Supper Movement aims to bring families back together in the kitchen and around the dinner table one Sunday at a time. National Sunday Supper Day is another step toward this goal.
HOW TO OBSERVE SUNDAY SUPPER
Invite friends and family over to spend the day preparing a Sunday Supper. While you’re preparing supper, discuss plans for continuing the tradition next week. Take turns and find ways to spend more time enjoying each other’s company over a meal. Create bonds that will last a lifetime. For more information visit wwww.sundaysuppermovement.com.

NATIONAL SUNDAY SUPPER HISTORY
Isabel Laessig is the founder of the Sunday Supper Movement and the Food and Wine Conference. A mother of four, she was inspired to start her Family Foodie blog when her oldest left for college and the things she would miss most about home would be the times spent in the kitchen and around the table with family.
In 2012 Laessig and eight other bloggers and their families celebrated the first virtual Sunday Supper with a progressive dinner. According to Laessig, she and these eight bloggers are “passionate about bringing families together to cook and eat together.”
