DETROIT – Henry Ford Health System and Kroger have a new partnership to help consumers eat and shop healthier.

Henry Ford LiveWell Wednesdays debuts Wednesday at all 126 Kroger stores throughout Michigan.

Every Wednesday, Henry Ford will provide Kroger shoppers with a healthy (and delicious) recipe developed by registered dietitian nutritionists. Shoppers will receive a brochure including a list of all ingredients needed for the recipe and a link to a video cooking demonstration.

Henry Ford LiveWell experts will also be onsite every Wednesday through September from 10 a.m. to 1 p .m. at four designated Kroger locations:

• Commerce Township – 2905 Union Lake Rd.
• Dearborn – 15255 Michigan Ave.
• Shelby Township – 14945 23 Mile Rd.
• Southgate – 13333 Eureka Rd.

“We are so excited to be working with a wonderful community partner like Kroger,” says Kimberlydawn Wisdom, MD, senior vice president of Community Health & Equity and Chief Wellness and Diversity Officer at Henry Ford Health System. “We view wellness as a lifelong journey – a daily commitment to making the right choices when it comes to things like healthy eating. Having a presence inside every Kroger in the state of Michigan is a great way to reach the people in the communities we serve.”

LiveWell experts will also answer questions about food labeling and explain healthy substitutions. They will also provide counsel on what to consider when cooking for people with food allergies, current food trends, and what to always keep in the freezer, refrigerator and pantry.
