Cooking Matters at the Store
Cooking Matters at the Store is a FREE interactive 90 minute session facilitated by a Beaumont Registered Dietitian at a grocery store, which includes comprehensive skill-based education that empowers shoppers with the ability to make healthy affordable choices.
Cooking Matters at the Store equips families with the skills they need to maximize healthy decisions and stretch their food budget. Cooking Matters at the Store will end with 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. Participants take home a booklet full of recipes and shopping tips, as well as a reusable grocery bag.
During the 90 minute 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
