As a grocery store RD in an inner-city neighborhood, I lead two to three grocery store tours a month for customers requiring financial assistance to feed their family. I appreciate the practical content of the "Shopping Matters" materials. The "Shopping Matters" mini-grant gave me the opportunity to work with grandparents raising grandchildren and teach them practical ways to shop for healthful foods on a very limited budget.

As a “Shopping Matters” Kids Eat Right mini-grantee, I found the grocery store tours to be a great chance for me to learn from my participants! Many of the tours ended up with "what can I feed my family for a quick dinner" ideas.

I enjoyed teaching the “Shopping Matters” grocery store tours as a Kids Eat Right mini-grantee. Several participants took my card to conduct more store tours with other groups. I look forward to doing more “Shopping Matters” tours soon!

I reached over 30 participants while conducting “Shopping Matters” tours as a Kids Eat Right mini-grantee. I had a great experience with all three store tours and the participants had great questions and seemed to be truly interested in learning and sharing tips with each other.

I love leading store tours. It is one of my favorite parts of my job. People are usually a little apprehensive at first, but once they complete the tour, they usually refer family and friends! I lead about eight tours each month - some for individuals with specific health concerns, and others for groups, and the “Shopping Matters” materials were very helpful to me.

My “Shopping Matters” participants had very positive feedback about the grocery store tours, especially in regards to whole grains and being able to practice what they learned by buying foods from each food group with the provided $10 gift card.

Most of my “Shopping Matters” grocery store tour participants had positive things to say and were glad they attended. All reported learning something new and they would use the knowledge they learned for future shopping experiences. I enjoyed being a “Shopping Matters” Kids Eat Right mini-grantee.

I love working with children and their environments! Children model what they see and being able to change their environment so they "see healthy" is so rewarding and fun. Subtly helping children be healthier and getting smiles in return? You can't beat that!

The “Shopping Matters” materials were very helpful as I conducted tours as a Kids Eat Right mini-grantee. The majority of participants was surprised to learn about unit pricing and was very interested in using this method when shopping on a budget. What was interesting was that this topic was new to those of all different ethnic, economic and educational backgrounds. It seems to be a lesser known topic. I will be doing more "Shopping Matters" tours to help people buy healthy foods on a budget!

The "Hunger in Our Community. What We Can Do." presentation for adults received positive feedback and started a discussion of things that can be done in Parker County, Texas. The local food bank director was in the audience and she supported the presentation and thanked me for the information. She later emailed me that she is currently developing some nutrition programs for food bank clients and wants to get together to figure out how to partner together and come up with a way to help families in our community. Being a Kids Eat Right mini-grantee gave me a great opportunity to connect with this Food Bank Director and get more involved in my community in a meaningful way."

The "Family Meals" toolkit was easy to use and present. The participants enjoyed hearing the important impact of family meals on the dynamics/communication in their family, how meals at home can be made quick and easy and how to enjoy meals on the go as a family. I did a taste test of the recipe on the handout, and everyone thought the "Meal in a Peel Potato Bar" was yummy and was a good demonstration of how quickly a healthy meal can be prepared at home.
