When I read "SNAP Challenge: Could you eat on $4 a day?" (Tribune, May 20th), I thought: Yes, you can, and well.
I feed my family of three on $400 a month $4.44 a day per person. We eat three filling and nutritious meals, with fresh or homemade snacks in between.
When we don't eat our homegrown and preserved fruits and vegetables, we buy organic ones (conventional store veggies are much cheaper and work, too). Some days we eat steak, but we also eat rice and beans. We eat nothing processed and have profoundly better health for it.
