A Previous Post on the Foodstamp Challenge

There have been a number of articles in the press recently about the Foodstamp Challenge, people who are not on foodstamps trying to feed themselves and / or their families on a foodstamp budget.  Almost exactly five years ago I wrote a post, The Foodstamp Challenge, on that subject.  It has been a popular post, in large part due to the fact that bloggers with larger readerships linked to it.  While a little dated at this point I think it still makes some interesting observations, especially about why I and my friends might be able to live on the foodstamp budget but people who actually need them would not. 

This is blatant self-promotion, I know.  Apologies.
