Dealing With Shame

slogan2Last week over on Fruclassity, Ruth wrote an AWESOME article in which she interviewed Leanne Brown about her book, Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day. In Ruth’s interview, the author talks about her research into the world of food stamp recipients, and the struggles food stamp recipients often go through as they work to eat within the food stamp budget they’re given and at the same time deal with the shame that often comes upon people surviving on government assistance.

  1. I agree. It’s better to deal with shame as soon as possible. Because when it’s become part of our life for too long, it’s hard to get rid of it. This is what we shouldn’t let it happen. Nice article Laurie.

    I have watched a number of documentaries recently that touch on the inability of a number of Americans to afford/get access to high quality food at affordable prices. Heading over to check out the article now.

      Yeah, I haven’t read the book personally, although Ruth has, but I know that we are feeding our family of six very well on $400 a month. I doubt many would view “well” as we do, though. Well to us means organic brown rice, non GMO pasta and lots of veggies and fruits, but little-to-nothing in the way of convenience foods and pop and chips and the like.
