SHOPPING MATTERS

COOKING MATTERS — AT THE STORE

MAKING HEALTHIER FOOD CHOICES

Fresh, frozen or canned? Store brands or premium brands? Serving size, nutritional value and cost per serving? So much goes into making good shopping decisions. Built from the success of the fifth week in the Cooking Matters for Adults course, Cooking Matters at the Store is a free grocery store tour, conducted by trained facilitators at local supermarkets. Participants learn basic skills that help make grocery shopping fun and economical. During Cooking Matters at the Store tours, participants learn and practice key food shopping skills like buying fruits and vegetables on a budget, comparing unit prices, reading food labels, and identifying whole grain foods.
