    Default Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton Lives On Food Stamp Budget For A Week, Loses 4 Pounds

    Since I am a member of the St. Vincent De Paul Society which feeds the hungry, and I sure do remember what it is like to live on Ramen noodles, I thought this was great what this mayor is doing! And just so you know, it is Hunger Awareness month. I am very surprised at some of the states on the top ten list of food stamp recipients.

    As part of Hunger Awareness Month, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton chose to experience what life is like for the 1.1 million food stamp recipients in Arizona.

    Last week, Stanton, a Democrat, took part in a community challenge to live on a food stamp budget -- just $4.16 to buy food per day, or about $29 per week for one person.

    Stanton said he was barely able to meet nutritional needs and lost four pounds, according to Fox 10 News Phoenix. He skipped meals and relied on ramen noodles, pasta and coffee, according to KTAR.
