Friday Feature: Good and Cheap by Leanne Brown

Good and CheapThe main focus of our jobs is helping clients make enough money to cover their basic expenses.  Self sufficiency is also about managing costs.

Good and Cheap is a cookbook focused on healthy meals affordable on a SNAP (formerly food stamp) budget.

The recipes include plenty of beans, rice and spices that will feel familiar to many of our client populations.  It has lots of pictures and is written in simple, clear language.  Best of all, it’s available for free online or as a PDF download.

Consider passing the resource along to case managers, volunteers, instructors and others who might be working with clients on budgeting or healthy lifestyles.  Nothing wrong with stretching our own budgets, either.  Enjoy!

(Every Friday we highlight one entertainment option related to our clients or some aspect of our work to help you celebrate the weekend and possibly recommend to employers and other community supporters in the following week.)
