    "family is" eating.
    "Families are" eating.
    Family is eating, is present tense, meaning that the family is currently eating right now.
    Families are eating, is present tense but, when you're using are, you're talking about more then one family, thus, you must make family, into families,
    because family is 1 [family.
    and families is more then one [family].
