Rebecca Blood, one of my favorite (non-food/general) bloggers, has started an interesting challenge: eating for a month organically on a U.S. Food Stamp budget. Naturally she is blogging the experience. Given the current ongoing discussions in the U.S., Europe and elsewhere about the cost of eating ethically, let alone organically, it's a very timely experiment. Rebecca's budget for 2 is "$74.00/week or 320.80/month, the USDA [U.S. Department of Agriculture] 'Thrifty' standard for a family of 2 adults, aged 20-50 years."
(My only very minor nitpick would be that Rebecca lives in the Bay Area, which has to be one of the easiest places in the world to conduct such an experiment. :) Now I'd like to see a similar one by a blogger in say, Iceland. Any takers? )
