GROCERY STORE ASSIGNMENT
Visit an ethnic grocery store and research how
the foods found at the grocery are a staple for their cultural diet.
Consider the history of the country: famine, coastal region, destruction, wars, and country economics.
Explain how the cultural group may utilize the food pyramid in meal planning.
Discuss your findings based on the RESEARCH YOU HAVE DONE PRIOR to visiting the grocery; be sure
to share what you learned at the grocery that agreed (or disagreed) with your findings.
Grading will be based on the level of detail you provide in your submission to the following:
• Did you visit a grocery store and document the name and location? You will not receive
maximum points if you visit the international food aisle of a traditional grocery store. You are
instructed to visit an ethnic food store.
• What culture did you select? How detailed was your discussion?
• Did you describe and discuss the history of the country including areas (but not limited
to): famine, coastal region, destruction, wars, and country economics? How detailed was your
discussion?
• How does the cultural group use the food pyramid in meal planning? How is diet viewed? What
are common foods? How detailed was your discussion?
• What did you learn when you visited the grocery store that supported (or refuted) your
research on the culture that you selected? How detailed was your discussion?
• Did you provide a reference page? Were the number of references adequate for the topic
discussed? I am not putting a minimum or maximum on references, as it will vary by the amount
of research you have put into the assignment. Were they appropriately documented in APA
format?
• Were there any typographical or grammatical errors? Formatting issues (e.g., 16 pt font, 3″
margins, Comic Sans font, etc.)?
Include 2-3 pages of content (not including your reference page) for all resources used to support your
findings. All assignments in this class should use APA format for citations, unless otherwise noted.
A cover page is not required and does NOT count towards the 2-3 page requirement. Please
follow general manuscript writing formatting (e.g., 12 pt font; Calibri, Times New Roman, or similar
font; 1″ margins; .5″ paragraph indentation).
To receive maximum credit, the assignment is to be turned in via hard copy at the beginning of class on
the due date; you may also upload to eCampus as a backup.
Please view the University policy on Academic Honesty (http://catalog.monmouth.edu/graduatecatalog/university/academic-honesty/), and be sure to visit Writing Services if you need assistance with
writing or formatting your final submission.
