Supplemental Nutrition

posted in: Research Paper | 0

I am so pleased to have the course Graduate Student and experienced Registered Dietitian, Tim O’Neal present this video about supplemental nutrition and shopping on a budget. The talk includes a description of the project and instructions. Submit your written work to the Turn-It-In submission link by the due date listed above.

Written Project Instructions:

1) Click on the “Project A” link above. Watch the lecture video.

2) Research a government supplemental food program

3) Calculate your hypothetical eligibility for that program. (You do NOT have to actually apply for any program.) Calculate the food “allotment” you would receive from that program for your current household for one week.

4) Create a grocery budget in which you try to live on just that food allotment for one week.

5) Go to a grocery store and see what foods you can/ can’t buy on that budget.

6) Write 1-2 pages on your findings, the program you chose. What foods were allowed? What did you learn? What did you have to give up for the week to stay in budget? How has this changed your view of supplemental nutrition programs?
