MMC About Cooking Matters

Free

with Eve Moore, MMC WOW! Wellness Council

Calendar Sep 22, 2021 at 5 pm

Do you want to eat more healthfully, but think it's too expensive or difficult to do so? Then the Cooking Matters at the Store Tour (CM@TS) might be the perfect opportunity for you! The Store Tour teaches you the essentials of how to shop for nutritious food on a budget while "touring" a grocery store.

During the one and a half hour virtual group session, your instructor will:

  • Go over basic nutrition considerations
  • Go over how to "shop the perimeter" of the grocery store
  • Share tips and tricks on how to get the best bang for your buck!

They will also encourage you to share your own experiences and pro-tips, so that they can make the Store Tour as relevant to your life as possible - and maybe learn something new themselves. All participants will receive a $10 Hannaford gift card and a Cooking Matters at the Store Tour booklet for attending, via mail.

In Maine, Cooking Matters® is managed by Good Shepherd Food Bank, and classes are taught through partnerships throughout the state. For more information, see the Cooking Matters® and Good Shepherd Food Bank websites. If you have any questions or would like to learn about the other, 6-week long courses offered through Maine Health, contact cookingmatters@mmc.org.
