Can Gwyneth Paltrow Live Off Food Stamps?

The Goopster is going low-budget!

Quick recap: Famed actress and Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow curates a website called Goop that gets a lot of attention for its high-end lifestyle leanings. So imagine everyone's surprise when Paltrow announced an attempt to live off a $29/week food-stamp budget.

Paltrow posted a snapshot on her Facebook page showing what she bought with her $29 at her local grocer.

"This is what $29 gets you at the grocery store—and this is what families who rely on SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) have to live on for a week. We're going to walk in their shoes and see how far we get."

The challenge to survive like a low-income American is part of the #FoodBankNYCChallenge being promoted by celebrity chef Mario Batali. The challenge involves living off a food-stamp budget of $1.38 per meal for three meals a day.
