The Governor of Oregon and his wife have taken up The Food Stamp Challenge, a program for rich people here in Oregon to give them a taste (litterally) of how the other half lives. I think it's a good idea- but then I saw the budget: $42 for the week, or $1/person/meal. Well, I've got a 3 person family- and we try to stay under $60/week for our food, under $90 if you throw in food for the daycare business, but that raises the number of people eating to 8. I thought this was a NORMAL food budget- it allows for creative cooking and even a gourmet attempt every now and then. Is that what people really get on food stamps?
