shane.jpgMy Table magazine asked me to chronicle my family's experience in living on the average amount a SNAP recipient family gets for food - only $3.85 a person.  Could we do it?

That's my younger son, Shane, at the dinner table, as we experienced together the challenges of eating on a SNAP (or food stamp) budget - only $107.80 for our four-person family for a week.  We made it, and you could, too.  It's an eye-opening experience.

The bottom line?  Choose between cheap calories or good nutrition.

My Table magazine kindly offered to share a good quality copy of the entire article.  Take a look.
