Food Safety SLA: Food Privilege Photo Project

profileIfea

Explore the different costs associated with “greenwashed” foods compared to conventional foods at your local grocery store (you may do this in-person or using a store’s website/app provided they have photos meeting the criteria below). Create a PowerPoint or Google Slides that include the following:

  • A title slide and introduction to your photo project that includes the grocery store you visited (5 pts)
     
  • Side-by-side photos of the products with their costs and nutritional information
     
    • Choose one greenwashed product and one comparable conventional product of each of the following (they should be the same size---for example, a 12 oz can of organic peas and a 12 oz can of conventional peas) (5 pts each):
       
      • Protein source (meat or meat substitute) 
         
      • Dairy product (milk, eggs, yogurt, etc)
         
      • Produce (fruit or vegetable)
         
      • Frozen food
         
      • Snack/treat food
         
  • Definitions of greenwashing and the buzzwords used on your products (for example, ‘natural’, ‘cage-free’, ‘no added hormones’ etc.); do those descriptors have actual meaning/hold value? Hint: you’ll need to look this info up. (10 pts)
     
  • Final slide(s) that addresses the following (10 pts): 
     
    • Were there any significant differences in the apparent safety or nutrition of the products you compare? 
       
    • If you were shopping for food for yourself, which products would you be most likely to purchase? Why? 
       
    • How do you think greenwashing impacts consumer behaviors?
