“Between dance rehearsals, Little League practices and the abundance of dual-working and single parents, today’s 21st century families are overwhelmed and spending less time together at the table,” said Mom’s Table Owner Joanne Rooks. “Our high-quality, to-go meals, which are also popular with seniors, provide a nutritious alternative to fast food. It’s like having your own chef. We do the cooking and all you have to do is refrigerate, reheat and eat.”
The pre-made meal concept also has other benefits in addition to time and cost savings. According to statistics provided by the CASA Columbia Family Day initiative, frequent family dinners can help reduce adolescent and teenage substance abuse.
“As a sponsor of CASA Family Day, which will take place on September 22 this year, my goal is to make mealtime matter,” said Rooks. “It brings me great fulfillment knowing our prepared meals offer an opportunity for families to communicate with each other and for parents to really listen to what’s on their kids’ minds.”
