Supermarket Smarts

Shopping for healthy food can be a tricky task in today's supermarkets. The Supermarket Smarts program teaches participants how to be supermarket savvy by providing education on the recommended food groups, food labels, and how to shop for the healthiest food in the market.

Recent participants of the Supermarket Smarts program said:

"The tour was great. I really enjoyed it and I hope to apply this information in my life. I would definitely recommend this tour to anybody."

"I enjoyed the tour. I eat food everyday but I never look up the nutrition facts the food contains. After the grocery tour, I became conscious of my nutrition and have started to shop smart."
