Hi Alphonse,

You want to create an array named grocery_list with the values under item in the grocery_item hash. Also, you want to declare the array outside of your if block. e.g.

grocery_item = { "item" => "Bread", "quantity" => 1, "brand" => "Treehouse Bread Company" }
if grocery_item.has_value?("Bread")
  grocery_item.store("food", true)
end
grocery_list = grocery_item.values_at("item")
