Kainang Pamilya Mahalaga Day

Family Dinner

Today is “Kainang Pamilya Mahalaga Day”!

Every fourth Monday of September of every year, families are enjoined to have dinner together in observance of Kainang Pamilya Mahalaga Day.

Signed on January 26, 2012, Proclamation No. 326, also known as Kainang Pamilya Mahalaga Day explains that “one of the meaningful traditions of Filipinos is the common family meal where all members of the family are present to signify their unity and thanksgiving for God’s abundant blessings.  Having a common family meal encourages parents to stay connected with their children and understand the challenges they face.”

Parents giving time to share a meal with their children despite busy work schedules is part of ensuring work-family balance.

Proclamation No. 326 further states that “there is a need to highlight and celebrate the value of families sharing meals together as a national tradition that should be observed annually and sustained by all Filipino families.”
