It's almost time for this year's Food Bank Hunger Challenge!

I am gearing up to be grumpy creative with my spending, cooking and consuming next month the week of September 11-17 when I will be eating on a "food stamp budget" for the entire week. This year the budget will be $4.72 a day which is the average amount allotted to a food stamp recipient in California.

Misery loves company so I invite you to join me and sign up for the 2011 Hunger Challenge! While I joke about this project, it's actually an amazing experience and I really do hope that you will give it a try. For so many hunger isn't an experiment but an every day reality.
