...As a part of their social justice course at the school, five students chose to take part in the challenge, organized by Raise the Rates, a coalition of community groups with concerns over poverty.ll
...The students started by combing the grocery store for the cheapest items, and wound up with Heinz Zoodles, a canned pasta. They would eat Zoodles for breakfast, maybe an apple and granola bar at lunch and Zoodles again for dinner.
Gee.. seems no one pointed out to these entitled geniuses that you can actually buy a pound of uncooked pasta (which, cooked, would be a heck of a lot more) for less than the price of a can of those pre-made Zoodles they were buying.
