Hosted by Slow Food USA, the $5 Challenge is an effort to prove that five bucks can get you a healthy home-cooked meal with more taste and less waste:
The Challenge: This September 15th, 2011, you are invited to take back the ‘value meal’ by getting together with family, friends and neighbors to cook a slow food meal that costs no more than $5 per person. Find an event happening near you, host a dinner, or have a potluck.
Why: Because slow food shouldn’t have to cost more than fast food. If you know how to cook, then teach others. If you want to learn, this is your chance. Together, we’re sending a message that too many people live in communities where it’s harder to buy fruit than Froot Loops. Everybody should be able to eat fresh, healthy food every day.
Get Involved: Sign up for the challenge! You can cook a meal with friends and family, find a local event, or host your own event. When you sign up, we’ll send you $5 cooking tips.
