Shrewsbury – Members of the Shrewsbury community learned how to “Build a Better Lunch” on the front lawn of the Shrewsbury Public Library Aug. 9.

Healthy Eating Specialist Dawn Berthelette of Whole Foods in Bellingham spoke about the importance of eating healthy. The program focused on how to pack a better lunch with real whole foods, limiting the amount of refined ingredients as much as possible.

“It's important to be conscious of what goes into your body because it's something that you can control,” she said.

Her sample lunch featured foods found at Whole Foods stores, but Berthelette noted that many of the products can be found at any grocery store.

The “Build a Better Lunch” program was made possible through the Outside the Box grant given to the Shrewsbury Public Library.
