If you fix dinner, can you fix a family?   We asked 5 families facing different obstacles from over-scheduling to autism, to commit to having regular family dinners. What happened was better than anything I could have ever written. Their stories played out over 23 episodes and were the center of a larger program challenging all families to get to the table together more often. 
"The Let's Fix Dinner Challenge"
Creatives: Ann Lemon, Tia Lustig, Lauren Williman
Producer: Mustafa Iman
Director: Craig D'Entrone - Punched in the Head​​​​​​​
The statistics about the power of family dinner are pretty staggering and were the inspiration for the campaign.  After the launch of this campaign, Stouffer's and Nestle were recognized by CASA - The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University.

 
Parents were really convinced of the power of dinner once they heard a couple simple facts.  This video made it's way around the mommy-blogger world.
