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 ends in the $10 Challenge, an activity where participants use the skills they've just learned to buy a healthy meal for under $10. Participants take home a booklet with recipes and shopping tips, a reusable grocery bag, and $10 worth of healthy groceries. Please wear comfortable shoes, as we will be standing and walking for at least one hour.

Registration is required at least 24 hours in advance to receive materials.
