Roy Communities That Care Coalition, Latinos in Action, and Roy City Council spent the evening on September 28th, 2021, handing out delicious Subway Sandwich meals to 750 people as they drove through our station at George Wahlen Park. Thank you to our community partners for making this event a success!
Why does Roy Communities That Care Coalition and Roy City Council sponsor this event each year? We do it to encourage our awesome Roy families to have regular family meals together. Several studies show that children who have five to seven weekly meals together with family are less likely to engage in risky behaviors such as drug use and underage drinking. There are many other benefits to eating together as a family. It creates bonding and better relationships between family members, better academic performance, and better eating habits.
As a community, Roy knows how to pull together to take great care of our youth. We want them to have the best chance possible at a healthy and happy adult life. So, begin right now with the simple action of sitting together at the kitchen table to share a meal and good conversation.
