FARMINGTON — Healthy Community Coalition is offering a free Cooking Matters at the Store shopping tour at the Farmington Hannaford from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 4.

Coalition educators will coordinate information tables with samples, recipes and activities throughout the store.

Participants will gain a variety of practical skills, including buying fruits and vegetables on a budget, comparing unit prices to find bargains, reading and comparing food labels, identifying whole grains and sticking to a budget.

At the end of the tour, participants who visit each station and complete a short survey will receive a $10 Hannaford gift card to purchase a healthy meal on the budget, a reusable grocery bag and recipe booklet with simple tips on buying healthy, low-cost foods.
