Supermarket Tours Continue in 2012

Decatur Active Living is happy to announce that the popular Kroger Supermarket Tours will continue in 2012 the second Saturday of each month at 10am at the downtown Kroger. The tours, led by Nutrition Graduate Students at GA State, teach participants about food labeling, making healthy choices and share healthy recipes. The students have also chosen a theme for each months tour.

A recent participant said, “The tour turned out to be very helpful. I really like the fact that Lori taught us how to read the labels correctly. She also took the time to answer questions very patiently.  I am into healthy living and eating, yet I learned so much especially during the tour of the dairy and seafood department.”

Start off the new year right and join us for the January 14th tour. Tours are free, but since space is limited you must register by January 9th by calling 678-553-6541 or email .

Supermarket Tours Very Informative

Our Tour Guide, Ashley DePriest

The Active Living Department offered Supermarket Tours at our local Kroger for the month of June and July. I went on the tour this morning and was surprised at how much I learned. Ashley DePriest, our tour guide, is a graduate student at GA State and has a lot of great information on which foods are healthiest, how to select them, what does “organic” really mean, and more. This tour should be a requirement for anyone shopping for food!

Thanks to our local Kroger for working with Active Living Board Member Sally Brozek to accommodate the tours. There are still a couple of openings for the tour on July 21 at 7pm, and we plan to begin offering monthly Saturday tours in August. For more information contact or call 678-553-6541.
