NJ’s Food Stamp Challenge

It’s called SNAP and the Food Bank of South Jersey is challenging people for 1-3 weeks to eat on $4.75/day. As a chef I thought that would be just sort of medium challenging. Wrong.

And the lack of money encourages you to fill up on things that are not nutritious (I’ve declined fresh fruit for chips). It’s an eye opener – check out more details at www.foodbanksj.org
