Thank you for partnering with me to build healthier communities!

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

Help us celebrate our 40th year of building healthier communities by donating $40 today!
