Cooking Matters at the Store

Cooking Matters at the Store is designed to ensure that more families have the opportunity to learn how to make healthy food choices on a limited budget. A one-hour free tour of their local grocery store enables participants to make real changes to their food shopping habits.

For every tour, participants are encouraged to:
  1. Identify at least three economical ways of purchasing fruits and vegetables
  2. Practice comparing unit prices
  3. Practice comparing food labels
  4. Practice identifying whole grains
Each tour also includes:
  • A recipe book
  • $10 Hannaford Gift certificate
  • Reusable shopping bag

For every tour, participants are challenged to purchase a healthy balanced meal that will feed four, include all the food groups, and stay under $10.

Cooking Matters at the Store is sponsored nationally by Share Our Strength, and locally by Good Shepherd Food-Bank and Hannaford.
