Leanne Brown

Stunned by the number of Americans on food stamps, Leanne asked herself, how well can someone really eat on $4 a day - the amount provided by the government? She answered that question by developing recipes made of whole, unprocessed foods that promote the joy of cooking and show just how delicious and inspiring an inexpensive meal can be when made at home. The result? Her book - Good and Cheap - Eat Well on $4/Day. Meet Leanne, named one of Forbes 2015 30 Under30 - Food & Drink.
