White Center & Delridge Neighborhood Grocery AuditGrocery
Audit--Saturday, May 24th
What is available in our communities?
We need YOU and your YOUTH!
This Saturday, May 24th, the King County Food & Fitness Initiative's
(KCFFI) Assessment Team (Branden Born and students from the University
of Washington) need your help to do a Grocery Audit in the White Center
& Delridge neighborhoods. We are looking for at least 10-20 additional
youth and supporting adults.
What is a Grocery Audit and why are we doing it?
The purpose of our grocery audit will be to find out what foods are
available and how much they cost in the grocery and corner stores that
are located in the White Center & Delridge Neighborhoods. The
information gathered by community members will be used to develop a long
term food systems community action plan.
Using a list that we will be provide to you, you will go out and check
to see what foods on that list you can find in the store. If the store
has that food item, there will be a space for you to write down how much
it costs in that store. This is a great way for the community to begin
discussing what foods we have and what we want.
More information on Community Food Assessments can be found at
Details for Saturday:
- Meet at Youngstown Cultural Center at 10am (on bus routes 120 &
Address: 4408 Delridge Way SW
- Branden will explain how to do the grocery audit
- You will get a list of food items (brand name, size, etc.)
- In pairs (this is why you should bring friends or family members!)
you will go to one or two grocery stores, find these items, and write
down the price
- The first grocery store may take up to 1.5 hours, but the second
grocery store will probably only take about 45 minutes - since you will
be a pro by then! Corner stores will take less time.
- After you complete your audits, you will return your list to a
specific location (we will let you know on Saturday morning).
Please keep in mind:
- Youth will get service hours towards graduation!
- Everyone should plan on being committed from 10am - 2pm.
- Transportation has not been prearranged - please contact me if can
give rides, or if you need a ride.
