Food Bank Challenge

It's Day #1 of the great Saskatoon Food Bank Challenge! For one week, participants are eating off the contents of a typical food basket. It looks like plenty of food -- but the wrong food. Lots of bread but no fruit. Quite a few veggies but little protein. (It's a misconception that every food hamper contains peanut butter!) No sweets what-so-ever.

As for locally-grown food, I'm pleased to see potatoes, carrots and lentils. Still, I've pretty much exchanged my local diet for a poverty diet. But just for a week. Check out the Food Challenge blog.
