United Way Of King County Hunger Challenge.

Could you eat on $7 a Day for a Week?  That’s Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and there’s no accepting free food, no eating what you already have, and the meals should be somewhat healthy.  Many will be doing that April 20-24, 2009 during the United Way’s Hunger Action Week. 

What an interesting challenge — I would probably learn a lot.  If I didn’t already have longstanding lunch and dinner plans next week, I’d do it too.  It appears $7 is the maximum food stamp benefit for an individual.  I’ll make myself take the challenge another week or the economy may force it upon me.  Until then, I’ll be following the food blog reports, especially the posts by Savory Sweet Life.

    Wow, what a cool challenge to take, I didn’t know about that. I recently started a small food storage business and have created a website dedicated to helping people build up their emergency food supply. I noticed that you have linked the OC Mexican Restaurant Review; they have linked us on their website and I was wondering if you would be willing to do the same. Our site is http://www.foodstoragedepot.com. Feel free to check it out and see what you think. If this is something that you are interested in please contact me at this email address (taraivers@gmail.com) and we would be glad send you some of our product. Thanks and Best,

    Thanks for the follow. This challenge has been eating my mind. I don’t know how people do it without bulking on carbohydrates (rice, potatoes, and pasta). If you ever decide to do the challenge a different week I would love to know so I can follow you in your adventure too. Happy eating.
