Assignment 11: Excel Part II (Food Stamp Challenge) due April 19

Post  Admin on Wed Apr 10, 2013 8:00 am

Your challenge here is to come up with a food budget using the amount of money a food stamp recipient receives ($31 per week). You will need to research food costs (many of them are online through larger grocery stores like Meijer or Walmart) or smaller grocery stores often have their sales prices for the week online.

1. Create an excel spreadsheet with your food prices.

2. Create a chart showing how your budget is spent. You have more creative freedom on this chart than the previous one - you do not need to use a bar chart (but you can if you want). Use the basic design principles we talked about when we were discussing Edward Tufte.

Grading (5 points possible):
1 point: research on food cost data to create a balanced diet
2 points: creating the spreadsheet
2 points: creating the chart

Food stamp challenge. $31 per week, I say it can easily be done.

Dimensions are 600/348.
The blue bars show what I'm getting in serving every week with food stamp money from local stores, and the red bars show the least amount of servings for each major food group you should consume in a week. Number of recomended servings comes rom the Mypyramid chart.

follow the food pyramid.
