Food is a necessity and when you become a kinship parent, your food bill doubles, triples, even quadruples literally overnight! With the rising cost of food, it is important to know how to get the most food at the grocery store for the money you have to spend. During this webinar, we will learn methods for saving money when buying groceries, how to buy for a larger family, and examine some common techniques used by stores to increase sales-not save you money. We’ll also take a look at the Meat Department specifically to learn which cuts of meat to buy for your family, what to look for when choosing meat at the grocery store, and how to save money while shopping.

Join us for the first webinar of 2024 where we will talk with Dr. Gregg Rentfrow, University of Kentucky’s Extension Meat Specialist to learn ways to plan, save, and get the most food for the money!

Presented By:

Dr. Gregg Rentfrow, Extension Meats Specialist, University of Kentucky.

Dr. Rentfrow comes from an extensive agricultural background. Dr. Rentfrow’s experience with the retail meat industry began as a teen when he learned to cut meat for a local grocery store, leading to management of retail meat departments for larger grocery chains. From there, Dr. Rentfrow left the retail grocery store business and attended the University of Illinois, earning his B.S. and M.S. in Animal Science and Meat Science, and later, his Ph.D. in Meat Science and Muscle Biology at the University of Missouri.

During this time, Dr. Rentfrow has served as the Meats Judging Team Coach, the interim Meat Lab Manager, and the Meat Specialist for the Commercial Ag Program. He joined the University of Kentucky as the Extension Meats Specialist in 2006, with an extension/teaching appointment and now works with UK Extension Specialists and County Agents in establishing strong livestock and meat industry programs in Kentucky. Dr. Rentfrow continues to develop educational programming and workshops for consumers, meat producers and manufacturers.
