Last week, Slow Food USA announced its $5 Challenge, in which participants are encouraged to get together with family, friends, and neighbors on September 17 to cook a fresh meal that costs no more than $5 per person. The challenge is intended to show people that nutritious, home-cooked meals need not cost more than a typical value meal from a fast-food chain. Slow Food suggests throwing potlucks, community meals, cooking contests, and workshops to host the contest. Because meat and dairy products often cost more than veg food, this challenge could easily be completed with plant-based foods. Those interested can sign up on the $5 Challenge’s website.
