Rising Food Costs

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

6:30 pm at Broadmoor Arts & Wellness Center (3900 General Taylor)

As the seventh event in JLNO’s Financial Literacy program, this workshop helps people optimize their food spending through a detailed meal plan. Participants learn to analyze their food budget and lifestyle to see how much money and time they can devote to meal preparation. Then, participants review their family’s nutritional needs, including any special dietary considerations. With this information in hand, participants share shopping tips and discuss realistic meal-planning strategies, which include preventing waste.

This event is free and open to the public, and registration via this link is requested.

Financial Literacy is a powerful tool to achieving and maintaining economic freedom, and it is often not taught in a traditional educational setting. Those without access to this knowledge are susceptible to debt and poverty. With information about developing a household budget, creating an emergency savings account, and purchasing a first home, financial literacy can be the tool that transforms women’s lives.

To increase financial literacy and in alignment with our focus on Advancing the Wellbeing of Women, JLNO has developed a Financial Literacy for Women curriculum which focuses on the five key financial topics of banking, borrowing, budgeting, saving, and investing. All events in this program are free and open to the public.
