Stretching Your Food Dollars

  • Thursday, October 24, 2019, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Grocery shopping can be a real challenge, especially if you are on a limited budget but, because food is a controllable expense, it can be a target for reduced spending when money is tight. By planning ahead and managing your money wisely, you can still serve meals that are appetizing, easily prepared and nutritious. This program will talk about building upon what’s already in your cupboards, refrigerator/freezer and pantry, along with meal planning and other shopping tips.Ways to reduce food waste (a family of four can throw away $1,500 of food annually) and information on use by, sell by, and best by dates will also be shared. 

Cost: FREE
