Why is this Code not working?

I tried to solve this problem by looking into the internet but couldn't find any help. Please help!

public class MealActivity extends Activity {

    public TextView foodLabel;
    public TextView drinkLabel;
  public TextView mealLayout;

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        foodLabel = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.foodTextView);
      drinkLabel = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.drinkTextView);
        RelativeLayout mealLayout = (RelativeLayout) findViewById(R.id.mealLayout);

You are required to set the text color not the background color.Use setTextColor for foodLabel and drinkLabel instead of setBackgroundColor.
