GroceriesLisa Howard, author of The Cultured Cook blog,  returns to the Civic Center Library on Wednesday, March 13 at 6:00 pm to discuss how you can enjoy delicious and nutritious meals on a budget.

As Lisa mentions on her website:

 On average, Americans throw out 25% of the food we bring home. That translates to thousands of dollars of lost income every year. But by planning ahead, purchasing realistic amounts of perishable groceries, finding creative ways to use everything in your pantry and fridge, and securely storing what you can’t/don’t eat, you’ll save a lot more $$ than you ever could with coupons. And what’s even better? Your new budget foodstyle will support your health just as much as it supports your wallet!

Please join us to learn how to eat better and save money! This program will be held in the conference room next to the Civic Center Library. To register for this program, please call 586.574.4564.
