Families on a tight budget report that the cost of healthy groceries is their biggest barrier to making healthy meals at home. Food skills, like smart shopping, can help overcome that barrier.
For that reason Wayfield Foods has partnered up with Cooking Matters Open Hand at the Store, is a free program of the No Kid Hungry campaign that empowers families to stretch their food budgets so their children get healthy meals at home.
Cooking Matters at the Store is based on over 20 years of experience serving low-income families across the country.
Cooking Matters at the store consist of 1.5 hour grocery store tour, where participants are empowered with four key food skills:
1. Reading food labels
2. Comparing unit prices
3. Finding whole grain foods
4. Identifying ways to purchase produce in season
Cooking Matters at the Store tour ends with the $10 Challenge, an activity where participants use the skills they've just learned to buy a healthy meal for a family of four, for under $10. Participants take home a booklet with recipes and shopping tips, a reusable grocery bag, and $10 worth of healthy groceries.
