When we challenged our teen staff to make healthy dishes that don’t cost a lot, they tried meals their families have made and discovered that they could cook for themselves. And it tastes good too! We told them they couldn’t spend more than $7. We chose that amount because $7 is about how much a family on food stamps has to spend on a meal. We wanted to show that healthy cooking can be affordable.
