Supermarket Tours

Join your Hy-Vee dietitian for an aisle-by-aisle tour. You will discover new food choices, learn about label reading and discuss the basics of nutrition and healthy eating. Tours can focus on health concerns such as diabetes, weight management and heart health, or other topics such as improving your shopping list, quick meal ideas and budget eating. Please e-mail Nina to schedule a tour, or watch for announcements on upcoming group tours.

Community & Worksite Wellness Services

Several health and wellness programs are available for your business or organization. Your group can come to the store, or our health and wellness team can come to you. Services include health fairs, cooking demonstrations, weight management programs, nutrition presentations, health screenings and immunization clinics.

Cooking Classes

Cooking classes are a fun and interactive way to not only learn about healthier foods, but to get to try them in new, delicious recipes!
