Cooking Matters at the Store is a fun, interactive, guided grocery store tour that teaches adults to make real changes to their food shopping habits by helping families learn how to make healthy food choices on a limited budget. This is a 90 minute tour that includes label reading, unit pricing and low-fat choices. The tour will take place on Wednesday, July 22 at the Family Fare Grocery Store at 1411 S. Main Street in Eaton Rapids from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

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. If you are interested in participating in this scheduled tour, please call Karice Cronkhite at the Eaton County MSU Extension office at 517-543-2310 or email at by July 16. Registration is required! Space is limited to 20 people.
