In November 2008, I read a New York Times article about how poor quality food is cheaper than high-quality food (a widely accepted belief that I generally disagree with). The article talked about a couple in California who were attempting to raise awareness of poverty by eating for $1 a day.
Didn’t go so well.
A month of tortillas and popcorn and pb&js. Hungry. Cranky. Tired of the monotony.
One of the participants was quoted saying “I challenge anyone in America to eat fresh food on $1 a day.”
This is a challenge I cannot refuse.
