Assignment 13: Excel Part I (Food Stamp Challenge) due May 8

Post  Admin on Thu May 08, 2014 10:17 am

Your challenge here is to come up with a food budget for a week 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. For this challenge you can be creative in stretching your budget with coupons, rebates, etc.

Create an excel spreadsheet showing your food purchases for the week, including items bought, total servings of each, and the total cost. You can use the autosum button to total the costs.

Part II of this assignment will be creating two versions of a graph that compares your menu for the week with the recommended nutritional breakdown from the FDA. You can either break out the nutrition by food groups, or by calories, fats, protein and carbs.

Background reading:
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/lifestyle/2012/05/mario-batalis-food-stamp-challenge/

Objectives of Part One: learning to research and organize data for a chart (a common skill needed by graphic designers in the corporate world.)

Grading (2 points possible)
1 point: research on food cost data to create as balanced a diet as possible
1 point: entering the data into excel and using excel functions to total the costs

For submissions into this thread, you can take a screen shot of your sheet by using the print screen button on your keyboard, paste it into photohop, crop it and save it as a jpg.
