Free Webinar July 24: Cooking Matters at the Store

submitted July 22, 2013 by Matthew Ellis   |   comments

We invite you to join a free webinar on Wednesday, July 24th from 2-3pm Eastern for an interactive grocery store tour that helps families learn strategies to shop for healthy, delicious foods on a limited budget.

Share Our Strength's "Cooking Matters at the Store" engages low-income families where they shop to teach and practice skills like how to buy fruits and vegetables on a budget, read and compare food labels, compare unit prices and identify whole grain foods. To date, nearly 18,000 participants have joined a tour in their community, and organizations serving low-income families are integrating this hands-on learning experience in the services they provide, from Head Start and WIC nutrition educators to financial literacy programs and faith-based health and wellness outreach.
