During the 1.5 hour-tour, participants are empowered with four key food skills:
- Reading food labels
- Comparing unit prices
- Finding whole grain foods
- 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. The Midland Emergency Food Pantry Network donates the $10 vouchers. 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 Midland Emergency Food Pantry Network, (989) 486-9393 to schedule your spot. Registration is required! Space is limited. Grocery Store tours are provided at several locations throughout Midland County. Tours are available if there are 6-10 people.
