Food Check-Out Week starts Monday

Carroll County Farm Bureau Inc. will be promoting healthy eating while on a tight budget as part of Food Check- Out Week, starting Feb. 19 at 5 p.m. at Stephan’s IGA, Flora.

“Spin the Wheel” to answer questions on planning balanced meals and identifying healthy foods. Prizes will be given away to all who participate.

Now in its 14th year, Food Check-Out Week highlights America’s safe, abundant, and affordable food supply. Eating healthy while on a tight budget is within reach for most Americans.

“Learning to use your grocery dollars wisely helps ensure that nutrition is not neglected,” said Janice Frey, Carroll County Farm Bureau Woman’s Leader. “Join us for great prizes and educational materials for eating healthy foods provided by Carroll County farmers.”
