Social Media Outraged By Gwyneth Paltrow’s Food Stamp Challenge

Gwyneth Paltrow is slashing her food budget to raise awareness about hunger. But sometimes even the best intentions are met with criticism, eye rolls and sarcasm.

Last week, the Oscar winner announced that she had accepted The Food Bank for New York City challenge to live on food stamps for one week, with a grocery budget of $29 or about $1.38 per meal.”

Good work, Gwyneth Paltrow!

This is what $29 gets you at the grocery store—what families on SNAP (i.e. food stamps) have to live on for a week. pic.twitter.com/OZMPA3nxij— Gwyneth Paltrow (@GwynethPaltrow) 9. april 2015

Eggs, whole grain rice, beans, tomato, onion, garlic, chili.
This is good.
