$1 = 7 meals
« on: September 04, 2010, 10:28:26 AM »
Anyone have this in your area?
Basically the Local Food Bank is running some type of program which will provide seven meals for just one dollar.

What I'm really curious about is what in the world do they get that would count as a meal. Second how much money does a local food bank make off of this?
Do stores really advertise this stuff for free? Think about all the paper material needed(we have to scan it to put it on their bills) and everything else(delivery trucks, employees, etc).

They make nothing,  The $1 deosn't pay for the meal(that's donated), it pays for the distribution costs.

Ramen is $1 for a six pack at my local grocery store; maybe that's their idea of a meal.
Peace and love :cool:

What he said.  It's all volunteer and charity.

Also, ramen is very underrated.  I like to cook it with some egg, then stir fry it in sesame oil with some vegetables and spices.  It's really good :p

Hm, with an egg you say? This sounds interesting.
I love adding curry powder to my ramen.

He's basically making fried rice, just with Ramen.
