Cooking Matters at the Store
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In Ovid, New York on September 16, 2014, Ovid Big M will be holding a supermarket tour to show area families how to make healthy choices at the store on a limited budget.  During the tour, dubbed Cooking Matters at the Store for Adults, participants will get plenty of hands-on practice as they learn how to compare unit prices, purchase fruits and vegetables on a budget, compare food labels, and pick out whole grains.  Tour organizer Devra Rivkin of Seneca County CCE cited the growing need for families to learn how to make the best possible use of their resources when shopping for food in this difficult economy. 

Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters®, nationally sponsored by the ConAgra Foods® Foundation and Walmart, developed Cooking Matters at the Store for Adults based on research showing that careful food shopping practices, such as price comparison and nutrition label use, are associated with measures of better dietary quality.  The program aims to promote real changes to food shopping habits by creating a dynamic learning experience for participants.   

The tour will be held at Ovid Big M.  Advanced registration is required.  For more information, please contact Devra Rivkin at (315) 539-9251.
