Can you live on the Food Stamp Diet?
The Hunger Challenge starts Sunday, September 12th!
Much like David Blane, American illusionist and endurance artist best known for his high-profile brushes with death, I am going to eat on $4 a day ($28 a week) the average amount a person receives through Food Stamps. For one week I will be grumpy, I will be hungry, and I will no doubt struggle to keep my work quality up. Considering I spend $3 on an ice cream at Humphrey Slocomb quite frequently this should be an interesting week. But I'm proud to do it because no matter how much I joke around - this is a serious issue.
Can you do what so many others are forced to do? Try the Hunger Challenge and blog about it!
