Not familiar with Shopping Matters?
Shopping Matters is a one-time grocery store tour (built on the success of Week Five of the Cooking Matters for Adults course) that is designed to teach the primary food shoppers for households to select nutritious and low-cost ingredients. A typical Shopping Matters tour lasts 1-2 hours and entails a grocery store tour guided by a trained expert (you!), a supplemental curriculum that elaborates on the topics covered on the tour, a post-tour survey, and a reusable shopping bag incentive. Participants should walk away from a tour having learned key skills such as: buying fruits and vegetables on a budget, comparing prices, reading food labels, and finding whole grains.
Consider this an opportunity to participate in an ongoing service project in your community and highlight the work you do in a national context!
The training will take place this Saturday from 11am-2pm at the Sterling Heights Walmart located at 33201 Van Dyke Ave.
