Chapter 14: Journal Writing Activity

Read the scenarios below. Write your responses to the questions that follow.

A family needs to spend less on food while still preparing healthful, satisfying meals. You analyze the family’s typical shopping list. It includes such items as tender cuts of meat, instant rice, no vegetables, several boxes of cake mix, and out-of-season fruit.

A family discovers that they, like many families, are throwing away 40% of the food they buy from the supermarket. They are sometimes confused by the many different types of dates found on food packaging, such as the open date, pack date, pull date, freshness date, and expiration date.
