Starting today, Foodista is participating in the United Way Hunger Challenge week. For the next five days we are getting creative with only $7.00 to cover breakfast, lunch and dinner per day. Seven dollars a day is what you can expect if you are on food stamps in Washington state. You can count on a couple more dollars per day, depending on the number of people per household.
Knowing when and where we will get our next meal is a luxury so many of us take for granted. Do you think you can do it? In fact, one appetizer or drink alone can cost $7.00 (before tax) in most Seattle restaurants; now how about turning that $7.00 into three full meals?
