My decision to do this is timely. Other people around the country are also thinking about this issue, especially with low un-employment and the cost of food getting higher and higher. I am excited to see this trend in the foodie sort of things–perhaps we can start to bridge the nutritional gap between those who can afford to eat well and those who don’t or don’t realize they can.
The $5 challenge: Gather with your friends and family and eat a slow food meal (opposite of fast food) for no more than $5 per person. Choose food that is good for you, good for the planet and tastes good. I will say that it is easier to create an inexpensive meal for a group then for one person.
