LOVES PARK (WREX) — A health foods grocery store in Loves Park is trying to help people eat a healthy meal on a budget.
Choices Natural Market hosted a class Sunday to help people learn how to save money while buying organic.
Class participants learned more about labeling on foods, how to eat organic and more about Choices Natural Market. The store served food and wine at the event.
Choices Natural Market Owner Kathi Toulouse says she wants people to know about the options they have when eating organically.
“What we are really trying to do is raise consciousness in Rockford,” she said. “We want to be the light house of health so to speak, healthy eating, clean eating.”
Participants received coupons to the grocery store, which is located at 6718 Broadcast Parkway, Loves Park.
