Hunger Action Month

Wednesday, August 20, 2008

I am on the way...I am planning a menu of free water, one big piece of cheap pork that I can cook on the grill and eat from all week and a discounted loaf of bread. But, I now realize that the food store with the lowest prices is 10 miles farther from my house than the local Jewel. Should I spend $4.09 on gas to save a little on the food. I must plan the entire week to know...what a tough thing to do.

hi, I have had four speaking opportunities this week. I thougt it would be neat to use a 2 and one half gallon gas container to illustrate the high costs of fuel. It cost $10.00 to fill up the can.
I spent $10.00 buying food. I got one loaf of bread, peanut butter and jelly, mac and cheese and a can of tuna, one half dozen egges and the hope that I can strecth this food to cover half a week since it cost almost $16.00.

My earlier comments about drinking water...well, I have started to practice.

by the experiment ends next weekend. The real person on Food Stamps...well, their experience may be their daily life.

Don't lose track of that point.
