Students host free grocery tours to improve fruit and vegetable awareness

Fresno State nutrition and dietetic students will host 30 “Bulldogs in the Grocery Store” nutritional information tours for Fresno State students and the community from March 4 through May 6, at the Save Mart Supermarket (5750 N. First St.). The one-hour sessions will teach the importance of fruits and vegetables in fresh, dried, canned, frozen and juice products.

The eight-person tours will include free educational materials, coupons, budgeting tips and recipes. A student-designed cookbook will also be available at the end of the tour for $5. Dr. Lisa Herzig, Fresno State dietetics and food administration program director, is coordinating the program, which was created by a $5,000 grant from the Produce for Better Health Foundation.
