Healthy eating begins at the grocery store, but the options can be overwhelming. Is there a difference between whole wheat and whole grain? Should you use olive oil instead of vegetable oil? What’s the healthiest cereal option?

Hamman and Schafer will offer expert recommendations about how to make healthy choices at the grocery store. The tour is intended to be interactive, so participants are encouraged to come with questions.
