Starving Man's Diet Book

First day volunteering at "Second Harvest" today. It was just me and two other guys, one who's uncle works there as a trucker, and one older fellow who's been volunteering there a year and a half named Jim. Jim used to be homeless. He said that when he was, he visited the food bank and waited for all the women and children to go first. In the end, he would only get rice pretty much. He's a really sweet and quirky old fellow.

Anyway, this gave me an idea to create a sort of "Starving Man's" cook book. I want to take the "food bank" diet and make a recipe book out of that. I also want to look at the kind of food available in developing and less developed countries and create some recopies out of those. Lastly, perhaps a look at the native population in Canada, what kind of food they eat, maybe a "survivor man" diet of sorts. Any other ideas? I was thinking making it a "Weight Loss" book, but I think that is a little too politically incorrect...

During volunteering today, I spent an hour or so packing about 600 snack packs of pudding into boxes. I never want to see pudding ever again.

  9. I think it's cool that you volunteer. So many people just talk and few actually go do things to try to make a difference.
