Youth volunteers needed for May 24 neighborhood grocery audit

From Quyet Huynh at International District Housing Alliance

We need your youth!

This Saturday, May 24th, I will be working with the King County Food and Fitness Initative Assessment Team (Branden Born from the University of Washington) to do a grocery audit in White Center & Delridge. So far, I have 5 confirmed youth, and would love to have another 15-25 youth + adults.

  • Meet at Youngstown Cultural Center at 10am (on bus routes 120 & 125).

  • Break up into pairs (if there are enough youth)

  • After Branden explains the survey tool, each pair will audit 1-2 stores in one of the neighborhoods (depending on the number of teams, this may take 1.5 – 3 hours)

  • Transportation will not be provided – we can work on arranging rides to the stores, if needed.

  • Youth will get service hours towards graduation!

  • Everyone should plan on being committed from 10am – 2pm.
