Raise Your Food IQ: How To Be A Better Grocery Shopper

We’ll cover what you need to know to make the best choices – aisle by aisle – when it comes to buying fruit, vegetables, dairy, meat, eggs, grains, cooking fats, and packaged foods. This is NOT a class about calorie-counting, low-fat foods. Instead, a good food focusing on understanding keywords like local, organic, sustainable, grass-fed, humanely-raised, wild, GMO, and extra-virgin, which all tell a clearer story about the food we eat than its nutritional panel. A robust Q & A is included throughout the session, so everyone’s burning questions will be answered. 

Saturday, August 3rd
