Pop-up Grocery Store Week 5

 

A trip to the grocery store is a culminating experience that allows participants to practice the skills they’ve been learning in class in a real-life setting. It’s important to make every attempt to visit the store.  If a visit is not practical, it’s possible to use the pop-up tour kit to practice their skills at the course site.

 

IN ADVANCE

  1. Read through Lesson Five: Shopping Smart in the Instructor Guide. Review the Activity Talking Points for the Grocery Store Tour activity.

  2. Get food labels and materials from Pop-Up kit ready and organized to use.

  3. Designate the time that the pop-up will conclude and the $10 Challenge will begin.

  4. Consider asking participants on week 4 to bring any of their own food packages to share and discuss.

 

IN CLASS

  1. Welcome back the students and explain that this class will be a little different from the previous weeks.  We will start off with a quick cooking session, and then sit down to discuss strategies for shopping for healthy items and saving money at the store.

  2. Start class by preparing 2 or three quick snacks that can be eaten during the pop-up.

  3. Use the following table as a reference for suggested labels to use as you move through the talking points. 

  4. After completing the $10 Challenge activity, give participants $10 gift cards and ask that they share what they bought with their $10 gift card next week.
