Healthy U will be hosting Cooking Matters at the Store grocery store tours at Wood’s Supermarket in Sedalia in partnership with the University of Missouri Extension.

Cooking Matters at the Store is a MU Extension program designed to help people learn ways to shop healthier, more efficiently, and more affordably.

Participants will learn tricks for filling a healthier cart, tips for staying within their budget, and some ideas for meal planning and grocery lists.

Healthy U is a community health and wellness program in Pettis County.  As always, our community events are free of charge and open to the public.  However, space is limited and registration is required.

Two, separate, one hour tours will be conducted—one at 5 p.m. and one at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17.  Please call Melissa Boeschen at Bothwell Regional Health Center (a Healthy U partner) to sign up, (660)827-9138.  Questions may be emailed to
