Greetings, FEAST Around The Dinner Table Members!

I am reaching out today to all registered users of the AroundTheDinnerTable.org forum to individually let you know about a policy decision regarding this forum.

As you may know, this forum has been connecting parents and caregivers since 2004. As someone who has been part of the community, you well know the value of this forum and these marvelous families. As you may not know, this forum is a service of FEAST, an international nonprofit charity that supports families through peer support, information, and advocating for families in the worlds of policy and research and treatment.

FEAST hosts this forum as well as many other services and activities, and we want to bring all of our work under one umbrella. As part of that process, we are adding all email addresses registered on this forum to the FEAST mailing list. That means everyone will share equally in the news about eating disorder science and treatment. We also want you to get to know the people and events of this amazing community. The feedback we've been hearing is that folks aren't sure what FEAST is, and who FEAST is, and we want to make sure our treasured forum community is well-informed and connected.

If for any reason you do not want to receive email from FEAST, or you need that email to be infrequent, please contact me? It is very important that we respect privacy and the concerns of our users. We're here to support you, not to complicate your life.

We appreciate you as a member of this community, and your work as a caregiver and as a support to others.

Warm regards,
Laura Collins Lyster-Mensh
Executive Director
