Hokie Health: Strategies for choosing nutritious foods on a budget

From: Hokie Wellness

Despite rising food prices, healthy eating doesn’t have to break the bank. There are many smart strategies that can help fuel the body with nourishing foods, even on a tight budget.

Hokie Wellness will host a Healthy Nutrition on a Budget workshop on Tuesday, Sept. 14, from 12-1 p.m. at the North End Center (room 2420). Participants will learn how to make a healthy and affordable meal plan, save money at the grocery store, and decrease food waste. Participants will also receive a Budget Bites recipe booklet containing affordable, nutritious, and tasty recipes. 

Registration is required and space is limited. Face coverings are required, pursuant to the university’s most recent indoor mask guidance. If this requirement changes prior to the workshop, registrants will be notified with updated instruction. 

If you are an individual with a disability and desire an accommodation, please contact Lauren Shelor at 540-231-5142 or email during regular business hours at least seven business days prior to the event.
