Good and Cheap Cookbook Project

Help provide a beautiful copy of Good and Cheap to a limited income OXCM shopper!

A fundraising campaign for Oxford Community Market

Good and Cheap is a gorgeous cookbook for people with limited income, particularly on a $4/day food stamps budget. OXCM is launching a project to provide copies of this beautiful cookbook to our SNAP (food stamp) shoppers. These books are available for a special bulk rate with free shipping for non-profit organizations. Your donation of $10.20 will help provide 2 cookbooks!!!

Here's more about the cookbook:

"While studying food policy as a master’s candidate at NYU, Leanne Brown asked a simple yet critical question: How well can a person eat on a constrained budget – particularly the $4 a day budget given by the U.S. government’s SNAP/Food Stamp program? The answer is surprisingly well – with the right techniques and recipes.

In the GOOD AND CHEAP Cookbook (now also available in Spanish!) Leanne shares the simple secret that makes all the difference: kitchen skill, not budget, is the real key to great food. The 152 delicious and easy-to-make recipes that maximize every ingredient and teach economical cooking methods. Also included are supermarket strategies for shopping on a tight budget, how to stock your pantry with the basics, how to turn leftovers into a delicious new meal, and mastering the simple extras that make everything taste better."
