With the right skills, eating healthy can be affordable and delicious. Share your skills and your strength with families living on tight budgets.
More than one-third of families in Pierce County struggle to make ends meet. Even though these families see healthy eating as important, many are unable to prepare nutritious meals most nights of the week. Food skills taught during Colorful Cooking Made Easy grocery store tours (based on the Cooking Matters at the Store curriculum), like smart shopping, meal planning and healthy cooking, can help make healthy eating a daily reality.
Tours will be held at various grocery store locations across Pierce County.
Cooking Matters at the Store Tour Leaders offer interactive, guided grocery store tours that help participants learn to make healthy purchasing choices on a limited budget. Using our guide and support resources, these leaders organize tours in their own communities - recruiting participants, choosing the tour location, and planning and leading the tour. Potential leaders might include registered dieticians and community nutritionists, culinary professionals, Cooperative Extension agents, and staff of community agencies who are interested in helping low-income families make the most of their food resources.
