Celebrity Chef Mario Batali Goes on Food Stamps Budget

Can you get by on $1.48 per meal for a week? That's the campaign challenge that the Food Bank for New York City has posed to those interested in seeing what it's like to live on food stamps. Celebrity chef Mario Batali and his family have accepted the challenge and are living on $31 a week per person. Batali, his wife, and their two teenage sons are doing something that 1.8 million New Yorkers and 46 million Americans depend on.

Will you take the challenge ? Can you do it ? Alot of people in this country and around the world are feeling the pinch. Hang in there and keep a positive spirit.  Remember summer is the perfect time for listening and dancing to reggae music. Rising Lion will be out on the road to help you out with this.
