Recent Post on the One Dollar Diet Project Blog...

I have just read a recent post over at the One Dollar Diet Project. The One Dollar Diet Project was started by a couple of high school teachers who decided to experiment and find out what they could eat on $1 a day. There is a link to their blog here in the Pokeberry Blog list~ My Motley Crew.

I read their posts now and then and it gives me a little to think about. Currently one of the pair, Christopher is off in East Africa where he recently blogged about the students in a school there who live off 2 bowls of a wheat based porridge per day. There are about 1000 students in the school with less than a dozen teachers who are paid starvation wages.

Makes you think.

We are so fortunate here our country, we have a somewhat just government compared to many places and even the poorest among us it seems are more likely to be overweight than to actually starve.

Interesting blog.
