PRLog - June 29, 2012 - GEORGETOWN, S.C. -- Georgetown, S.C. -- Grocery shopping is fraught with stress, thanks to soaring food prices and aisles thronged with vacationers. Toss in the challenge of picking foods with a healthy balance of carbs, fiber and fat, and it’s enough to send us straight to the Good Humor Bars.  

Take the free Supermarket Tours led by Georgetown Hospital System dietitians instead. The hour-long tours are planned for Pawleys Island, Garden City and Georgetown in July and August.

The Pawleys Island Food Lion tour is set for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 19, at the Food Lion on Highway 17.
