25 Attachment E Sample Letter to Grocery Store Manager Date Dear Manager, The (your organization) is conducting a nutritious food basket survey to enable us to determine the cost of 66 foods that reflect healthy eating recommendations. We would like to invite your store to participate in this survey. Food costing is a tool that was developed in the 1970 s by Agriculture Canada to monitor the changing costs in the prices of foods. Now, Health Canada s National Nutritious Food Basket is used to raise awareness of the cost of a healthy diet and to compare the adequacy of various incomes to provide a healthy diet. We will be collecting food prices from (number of stores) grocery stores (in the area.) Prices from all stores will be pooled to determine an average price for each food item. Individual prices, brand and store names will be kept strictly confidential. Participating grocery stores will not be identified and the cost of either specific foods or of the nutritious food basket as a whole will not be released for any one store. This survey is not intended to determine the cost of food items per store but rather the average cost of healthy eating. The food pricing will be conducted by (number of people) individuals on (date of costing). With your permission, those doing food basket pricing will spend approximately 90 to 120 minutes in your store. We would greatly appreciate your participation in this project. If you have any questions please contact (person x) at (phone number). We will contact you by phone to confirm your participation. Thank you for your interest and cooperation. Sincerely, Name: Title: Organization: Phone: 77
