Online Grocery Stores – for Poverty Project

Instructions for Today’s Class (05/08/07):

  1. You’re buying groceries to make meals for one (1) week for you and your two children (ages 7 and 3). That’s seven breakfasts for 3 people, seven dinners for 3 people, 2 lunches for 3 people, and 5 lunches just for you. You may also include snacks (after school, after dinner, etc.).
  2. You do not need to feed your kids lunch (they will eat at school or at their day care for free).
  3. On a separate sheet of paper (or on the paper I gave you, or typed in a Word or Excel document) write down the food for each meal and the cost.
  4. Add up all the costs for the week – that’s your total food expenses for the week.
  5. Multiply by four (4) to get your monthly total.
