Operation Food Search's Tour Event Day
Operation Food Search (OFS), a non-profit hunger relief organization, will hold a Tour Event Day, which is free and open to the public and includes self-guided tours of the supermarket’s produce, bakery, meat, and dairy departments. Participants will observe a live cooking demonstration to help them learn how to prepare and cook nutritious meals at home. Schnucks Markets will feature various food sampling stations for customers that introduce healthy, family-friendly meal choices. Tours begin at 10 a.m., and the first 150 participants will receive a free $10 Schnucks gift card.
OFS recently received a $10,000 Newman’s Own Foundation grant, which will be used for its Cooking Matters at the Store® program. The program provides interactive grocery store tours and cooking demonstrations to show local families and individuals how to make healthy, affordable shopping choices.
Newman’s Own Foundation provides grants to support initiatives that increase access to fresh food and nutrition education in underserved communities. Founded in 1982 by Paul Newman, Newman’s Own, Inc. sells a variety of premium and organic food products and gives 100% of the profits to charitable purposes around the world.
