On this one-day celebration the weekend after Father's Day, men will gather to share their favorite dish with family, friends and community. Fathers, uncles and brothers will cook, bake, and/or grill their signature dish to serve in sample servings with attendees. Family activities will include music, games, storytelling, face painting and bounce houses to create a festive atmosphere for the entire family.
Call the Grubb YMCA at 515-246-0791 to purchase your taste ticket or just show up and enjoy the free family activities and free kids meals!
Fathers and men in father roles play a critical role in creating and maintaining a stable family that is the cornerstone of healthy communities. When fathers are engaged in building the foundation of their family children are less likely to engage in risky behavior, children become better learners, schools become primed for great teaching and learning and our communities become healthy and vibrant.
