Community Hunger Challenge #3: I am Lucy and I challenge you to try to eat on $4 a day. For the next 5 days I am going to try to eat healthy for as little as possible. To do so, I will be making recipes from Leanne Brown’s cookbook called Good and Cheap. I challenge you to join me and try to eat healthy on $4 a day. And when I say "a day" I mean breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner. I know it sounds impossible, but families in poverty have no choice but to live like that.
I have selected the recipes, gone grocery shopping, and am ready to start. After adding up the costs, the prices ranged from $5, $6, and even $7 a day. Then I realized how hard it is for families in poverty in Los Angeles to eat healthy where food prices are high. I hope you help make a change in the world and notice what situations others are in.
