A new and exciting opportunity is available for AARP Minnesota Volunteers. For those who are interested in food, nutrition, cooking or hunger issues, the Cooking Matters at the Store program is way to use that passion to help fellow Minnesotans. Volunteers will assist with or lead grocery store tours for older adults on how to buy healthy food and stretch their food budget.
