Cooking Matters at the Grocery Store Tour

Date: March 13, 2015 - March 14, 2015
Time: 1-2:30 p.m.
Location: Family Fare Grocery Store 2026 N Saginaw Rd, Midland, MI 48640

During the 1.5 hour-tour, participants are empowered with four key food skills:

  1. Reading food labels
  2. Comparing unit prices
  3. Finding whole grain foods
  4. Identifying three ways to purchase produce

Cooking Matters at the Store often ends in the $10 Challenge, an activity where participants use the skills they've just learned to buy a healthy meal for a family of four, for under $10. Participants take home a booklet with recipes and shopping tips, a reusable grocery bag, and $10 worth of healthy groceries.

Group series are available if there are six to 15 people, and at least half of the group is Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) eligible.
