To All Food Stamps Cooking Club Members:
It’s shameful that this corner of Cyberspace has been so sorely neglected. I make no excuses except to say I have a lot on my plate. But Facebook posted something that was so important to me that I shared it on my Timeline.
Today a good friend mentioned that she was unable to post a comment here and sent me a private message. I am sharing part of our conversation here because it is SO important. And by the way, SO ARE EACH OF YOU!

“These days many people lack the knowledge that our aunts, and grandmothers took for granted that everyone knew such as the ideas expressed here on how to use every available resource to keep their families fed as inexpensively as possible.
Too many times we hear about some well meaning celebrity who tries to bring attention to the situation that all too many folks are going through…how to feed your family on the cheap and make it stretch.
While well intentioned, often times they truly have no idea how to go beyond the surface and really dig deep and utilize every resource available to them to fill their family’s bellies with highly nutritious foods in creative ways when there is not an unending supply of available real food.
Here is another individual, besides you dear Connie, who truly understands the importance of that. http://monkeydoproject.org/
Thank you, Lorraine. I so hope that our Members will cruise by the link you include. THERE is the reality of what $29.00 will really buy. To feed a family of 4 on this food FOR A WEEK? O my goodness.
People who manage their food dollars with EBT cards from WIC and/or SNAP; people whose youngsters would be hungry if not for food pantries or food drops or food commodities are people I want to serve.
