Library plans presentation on healthy eating on a budget

Mesa County Libraries has scheduled a presentation on saving money on groceries while buying healthy foods.

The presentation, titled Cooking Matters, is set for 9:30 a.m. June 29 at the central library located at Fifth Street and Grand Avenue in downtown Grand Junction.

A virtual grocery store tour will show participants how to buy fruits and vegetables, find bargains, read food labels and ultimately eat healthy on a budget. Cooking Matters has a 20-year history of helping low-income families develop and maintain healthier eating habits.

The presentation is open to adults at no charge.

Space is limited and advance registration is required. To register, call 243-4442 or visit the Mesa County Libraries online events calendar at
