Why I started this blog

This blog initially began as a tumblr page where I chronicled my SNAP challenge in September-October 2012.  I wrote about my experiences to share with the organization sponsoring the challenge who was seeking to raise empathy and awareness around the challenges of eating on food stamps.  After receiving some positive feedback, I decided the transfer the posts to a site which allowed more interaction with my readers.

So please comment on the site and tell me what you agree with, what you disagree with, and if I’ve inspired any new thoughts or behaviors in your life.  Food is a common language we all speak, and I look forward to hearing about your story, too.
