Cornell Cooperative Extension Program

Stretching Your Food Dollars

Thursday, October 24 at 6:30 pm

Grocery shopping can be a real challenge, especially if you are on a limited budget. But, because food is a controllable expense, it can be a target for reduced spending when money is tight. By planning ahead and managing your money wisely, you can still serve meals that are appetizing, easily prepared, and nutritious. This program will talk about building upon what's already in your cupboards, refrigerator/freezer, and pantry, along with meal planning and other shopping tips. Ways to reduce food waste (a family of four can waste $1,500 of food each year) and information on the use by and sell by and best by dates will also be shared.

Presenter: Theresa Mayhew, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia & Greene Counties Resource Educators
