Minnesota lawmakers take food stamp challenge
St. Paul, Minn. — A handful of Minnesota lawmakers recently accepted a challenge from Minnesota Partners to End Hunger to live on a $3.00 per day food stamp diet.
For several days, they ate only what an average allotment of food stamps could buy in order to raise awareness about food stamp funding in the federal farm bill.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer talked with Rep. Jeremy Kalin, DFL-Lindstrom, about his experience.
