There's a push to encourage families to sit down to dinner together.
It's called the Family Dinner Project.
Transitions in Quincy held its first dinner for it Tuesday night.
The project started in Boston where researchers have found there are benefits for children and families when they regularly eat together.
"When families eat meals together, converse together over a meal, have fun together over a meal, it strengthens family relationships and it provides some really positive things for youth," said director of development Barbara Baker Chapin.
Transitions plans to hold two more dinners as part of the Family Dinner Project. One will be in April and another will take place in early summer.
