Free Kids Food Group Store Tour (Virtual) – Throughout August, families and kids are invited to participate in a free virtual nutrition tour focused on balanced nutrition from the five food groups, interactive food trivia and fun movement breaks. Participants will  also receive shopping tips and product recommendations. 

Free In-Store Back-to-School Bash – On Aug. 27, select stores will host Hy-Vee’s annual August Health Fair. Adults and kids are invited to attend for free to receive back-to-school recipes and learn more about health and wellness programs, including Healthy Habits and Freezer Meal Workshops. 

Freezer Meal Workshops (Virtual) – Hy-Vee dietitians will host two kinds of virtual Freezer Meal Workshops designed to help families save time and  money by preparing nutritious meals ahead of time. Participants can receive a step-by-step guide, recipes and an Hy-Vee Aisles Online shoppable link with all of the ingredients added.  

  • On-Demand Mini Freezer Meal Workshop: Back to School Made Easy (Free) 
    • Free mini classes featuring three back-to-school breakfast recipes will be offered.
  • Freezer Meal Workshop: Gluten- and Dairy-Free Recipes ($10) 
    • According to Hy-Vee’s dietitians, prepping ahead is key when managing dietary restrictions. Participants will learn how to prepare five affordable meals.

Free Wellness Wednesdays with Hy-Vee Dietitians (Virtual) – Complimentary classes will be offered each week in August. Topics will include Back-to-School Fuel, ABCs of Antioxidants, Best Breakfast Bars, Eating Healthy on a Budget and Healthy Habits Sneak Peek. Each class will also include a recipe demonstration.

Hy-Vee is an employee-owned corporation, operating more than 285 retail stores across eight Midwestern states with sales of more than $12 billion annually. The supermarket chain ranks in the Top 5 Most Trusted Brands and has been named one of America’s Top 3 favorite grocery stores.

After the past two years of uncertainty and changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we all hoped that 2022 might bring back a sense of normalcy.

However, with government and independent data confirming 40 years of inflation highs and Wall Street entering a bear market, grocers now have new challenges to face.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
