Residents learn healthy, affordable shopping habits during grocery store tour


MPDC’s Health Equity and Wellness team partnered with Cooking Matters for their second supermarket tour on April 25.  Residents toured Tropical Foods and recieved hands-on education and tips on how to use nutrition faces on food packaging to make healthier choices when shopping.  Tour attendees also learned how to prepare delicious meals while shopping on a budget.

A HUGE thank you to Ronn Garry, owner of Tropical Foods, for distributing gift cards to residents who attended the tour.
