Cooking Matters at the Store Produce Voucher Sponsorship

Cooking Matters at the Store Produce Voucher Sponsorship

About This Campaign

Every year, Foodlink’s team of nutrition educators teaches over 1,500 low-income participants how to shop healthy on a budget. Help them apply what they learned!

The Cooking Matters at the Store tours teach low-income participants to compare unit prices, read food labels, identify whole grains and buy fruits and vegetables on a limited budget. After the tour, participants apply the skills they learned to buy ingredients that would make a healthy meal for under $5. The tours either take place directly in a grocery store or at a community site, where the nutrition educator simulates a grocery shopping experience.

After completing a Cooking Matters at the Store tour, families receive a $5 food voucher to use at Foodlink's Curbside Market trucks or on eligible food at a grocery store.

How far does a $5 voucher go on a Curbside Market truck? Here are some bundles a family can purchase with your donated produce voucher:

Family Breakfast Bundle: 1 dozen eggs, 4 onions, 1 portabello mushroom, 2 green peppers, and 1 pint red tomatoes

Hearty Harvest Dinner Bundle: 3 yams, 2 zucchini, 1 pound carrots, 1 butternut squash, and 4 onions

Fabulous Fruit Bundle: 4 apples, 5 bananas, 3 oranges, 2 pears, and 2 lemons
