CBC's Live Right Now kicks off its third year by asking Canadians to Bring Healthier Home and rediscover the healthy benefits of eating together. Our new goal: share 100,000 meals by the end of April.

Studies have shown that people who eat together are more likely to make better food choices - and it's a chance to talk, connect and bond with loved ones.

Every time a shared meal is registered on Live Right Now.ca, Canadians will help put food on the table of a family in need.

Working with Food Banks Canada, we can help feed up to 100,000 families thanks to the generous support of Live Right Now's sponsors President's Choice and Dairy Farmers of Canada.

To help make meal planning a little easier, CBC's Live Right Now is launching some additional helpful tools:

1.Meal Planner:  Using trusted, dietitian-reviewed recipes from Live Right Now partners, create meal plans based on your dietary preferences.
