Cooking Matters at the Store Tour

  • Kroger 1441 Parsons Avenue Columbus, OH, 43207 United States (map)

Cooking Matters at the Store is a free, guided grocery store tour that provides tips and strategies to stretch food budgets while buying healthy food. During the tour, we will learn about buying fruits and vegetables on a budget, comparing unit prices, reading food labels, and identifying whole grain foods. 

At the conclusion of the tour, we will ask you to assemble ingredients for a meal with all five food groups for under $10. When you complete the challenge, we will buy those approved foods for you to take home!

Cooking Matters at the Store tours take place at Kroger: 1441 S. Parsons Avenue, Columbus, OH 43207. This tour will occur from 3:00pm - 5:00pm.
