Stored Procedure to insert into another table

Stored Procedure to insert into another table

Hi, I have table1 and table2 and i want to fill information from table1 into table2 using a stored procedure.  Here's what i have:

create sp_table2
(@personId varchar(36),
 @value varchar(40) OUTPUT
 @value1 varchar(40) OUTPUT)



insert into table2 (date, first_name, last_name, personId, value, value1)

select date, first_name, last_name, @personId,
@value = CASE item
   WHEN 'food' Then '3' END,
@value1 = CASE item
   WHEN 'drink' THEN '2' END
from table1


However, i keep getting this error message below.  Can someone help?  Thanks

Error message:
A SELECT statement that assigns a value to a variable must not be combined with data-retrieval operations.
