( 4UMF NEWS ) Gwyneth Paltrow Will Live On Food Stamp Budget For A Week:
For seven days, Gwyneth Paltrow will live on the $29-per-week budget of families who rely on the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP).
Paltrow has accepted the #FoodBankNYCChallenge from celebrity chef NYC Food Bank board member Mario Batali, who also challenged Sting and Debbie Harry, Us Weekly noted. The challenge limits people to $1.38 per meal for a week.
The 42-year-old actress spread the word on Twitter Thursday, along with a photo from the grocery store of what she purchased with her $29. The haul included limes, cilantro, corn, whole grain brown rice and eggs.

The #FoodBankNYCChallenge is meant to raise awareness about hunger and the struggle to live on a budget of just $29 per person for a week. Participants can use coupons, but they cannot use food that was already in their homes or food given to them by others.
