Tours like the one the First Lady participated in are part of the "Shopping Matters" and "Cooking Matters" programs that the Walmart Foundation funds through its partner, Share Our Strength. The tours, available in select Walmart stores across the country, feature teachers and chefs helping low-income shoppers better understand how to maximize limited budgets and still find healthier food options.
