Seasonal Special Happenings

An Evening with Leanne Brown

When: Fri., Oct. 23, 6 p.m. 2015

Process food sure is cheap. And it sure isn't healthy. After Leanne Brown moved to New York from Canada to get her master's in food studies at New York University, she noticed Americans primarily ate pressed food. It bothered her. She set about to help people in SNAP, the federal government's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, find ways to cook filling, nourishing and flavorful meals on a budget of just $4 a day. She published the resulting book, Good and Cheap, online; it's been downloaded over 200,000 times since she posted it on her website in early June. She'll talk about her book tonight at . Any books sold at this event will be matched with a donation of books to the Food Bank and the Coit Foard Farmers Market. The event starts at 6:30 tonight at the Euclid Tavern. Admission is free.
