Two of the biggest goals we never seem to achieve are to be better with our health and better with our money.  This can be challenging as we’re taxed for time and energy with our busy work days and family time. Finding ways to save time and money with our food budget can help us towards each goal at the same time!

Join us for our Food and Finances workshop to learn some valuable information and easy-to-implement steps.  In the session, you will learn how to:

  • Recognize the various factors that impact your food budget
  • Track your food budget so you know exactly what you’re spending instead of what you believe you’re spending
  • Learn how to create a meal plan
  • Save money on your groceries
  • Make meal preparation easier and less time consuming
  • Use a slow cooker to save time and money
  • Find low cost recipes
  • Use mobile technologies that can help you save money.

This session can help you get organized with your meal planning, shopping and cooking which saves you time and money while nourishing you and your family with healthy meals!

Free but space is limited, and registration is required online, in person at the library, or by phone at 604-299-8955.

At least 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men will suffer from an osteoporotic fracture during their lifetime. Osteoporosis Canada, a registered charity, is the only national organization serving people who have or are at risk for, osteoporosis. The organization works to educate, empower and support individuals and communities in the risk-reduction and treatment of osteoporosis.

Reducing the risk of osteoporosis is a lifetime process.  It is never too early (or too late) to start taking care of our bones. 

A volunteer with Osteoporosis Canada will assist you to learn what osteoporosis is. Find out whether you are at risk, how it is diagnosed and the role of exercise and nutrition (calcium, vitamin D and protein) in managing and reducing the risk of osteoporosis.

Seating is limited and registration is required. Please register online or in-person at any branch. For more information, call 604-436-5400.
