N.C. Cooperative Extension, Davie County Center, will offer two upcoming classes titled, “Saving Cents: Simple Strategies to Maximize Your Food Budget.”
“The cost of groceries and other goods and services have skyrocketed during the pandemic,” said Colleen Church, Davie Extension director. “This class will discuss simple strategies to help save on grocery costs, such as meal planning, understanding sell by and use by dates, freezing and more. Participants will learn simple tips to use before, during and after shopping to stretch their grocery budget.”
The first session will be held virtually via Zoom on Friday, Oct. 29 from noon-1 p.m. The class is free, and registration can be found at www.eventbrite.com.
The second session will cover the same material, but will be held in-person on Thursday, Dec. 2 from 6-7 p.m. at the Davie Extension Center.
The Davie Extension Center is at 180 South Main Street in downtown Mocksville beside the courthouse. The in-person class is also free, and masks will be required for participants.
