Food for Thought: Eating in Columbus on $4.50 a day

  • Local Matters 633 Parsons Avenue Columbus, OH, 43206 United States (map)


For the last 18 months, our Food for Thought guest, Carol Smathers, has adhered to a household food budget of $1.50/meal/person - groceries for one week (2 people, 21 meals each) for a total under $63.

Carol will share how she navigated the complexities of balancing a restricted food budget with healthy eating. As a group, we will then discuss some of the additional daily pressures and problems that arise for anyone living within a tight budget.

This event is free and open to the public. We kindly ask that all guests register for the event as our seating capacity is limited. 

"Food for Thought" is hosted at Local Matters (633 Parsons Avenue, Columbus, OH  43206). Doors open at 5:30pm, and light refreshments will be provided. For more information, please email or call 614-263-5662.
