Talk: Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day

Good and Cheap is an New York Times bestselling cookbook for people with very tight budgets, particularly those on SNAP/Food Stamp benefits. The free PDF has been downloaded more than 800,000 times, and a Kickstarter campaign for an initial print run brought in over $144,000 (it remains the #1 cookbook ever on Kickstarter). For every book sold, another is donated to someone in need. In conversation with Gail Simmons from Top Chef, Leanne will tell the inspiring story of Good and Cheap, share the success that readers have had with it, and discuss the troubling issue of food insecurity.
