Find the healthy through the aisles

CTW takes a grocery store tour with the Cabarrus Health Alliance


March 20, 2017--CTW is at Food Lion, one of the local grocery stores participating in a creative program by the Cabarrus Health Alliance to help inform shoppers on making great grocery decisions—Grocery Store Tours.
The Cabarrus Health Alliance, or CHA, is our area’s local health authority. They offer a variety of fun and creative programs to educate and empower residents to make healthy choices.
During the guided grocery store tours, you can learn skills to help you buy fruits and vegetables on a budget, compare unit prices to find bargains, read and compare food labels, identify whole grains, and how to stick to your budget.
After the tour, participants receive a FREE gift card that allows you to put your new skills to the test; a FREE book full of tasty recipes and simple tips on buying healthy, low-cost foods; and a FREE reusable grocery bag.
The next grocery store tour is Tuesday, March 21, 6-7:30 p.m., at the Food Lion located at 860 Union Street, South, in Concord.
