Cooking Matters at the Store

— Written By

CMATSThis is a free 90-minute guided tour around the grocery store to help people understand how to eat healthy on a budget. It will be on Wednesday, May 17th at 9:00 a.m. at the Food Lion on Roxboro Road in Oxford, NC. The tour is targeted for families in need but registration is required ahead of time due to a limited number of slots. Participants will receive a free reusable grocery bag, recipe workshop, and a $10 Food Lion gift card to purchase healthy food during the tour.

During a tour, participants practice key food shopping skills like:

  • buying fruits and vegetables on a budget
  • comparing unit prices
  • reading food labels
  • identifying whole grain foods

Participants also receive handouts and recipes so they can continue practicing what they learn at home and on future trips to the store. For more information or to sign up, contact the Extension Office at 919-603-1350.
