QE-at-SobeysStudents travelled to Sobeys for an interesting learning adventure in a grocery store.  They learned about the community helpers that work at the store including the baker and butcher.  They were also able to tour of the back of the store and saw the produce refrigerator. They bought a few vegetables to bring back to school for a healthy snack and Sobey’s generously donated cheese.
