Weights and Measures Week 2016 a Great Success

March 1, 2016

Take a look at how the Department of Weights and Measures educates our future consumers!

Weights and Measures teamed up with retailers and school districts to celebrate Weights and Measures week March 1 – 7, 2016.  As part of the event, the department trained more than 400 elementary school children on a variety of issues they can use to be better educated consumers.  All events were a great success!  The Department is grateful for all of our participants including the Palm Croft, Butler, Esperanza, and Joseph B. Zito elementary schools and Albertsons, Walmart, Food City, and Fry’s Food and Drug who hosted the events and the Arizona Food Marketing Alliance.
