In The New Yorker article Clean Plate Club Weigh-In by Ben McGarth, he talks about how city councilman Eric Gioia from Queens, New York, went on a Food Stamp Challenge. Eric Gioia went on a food stamp challenge; during this challenge he only ate what a New Yorker could afford on a week of food stamps which is about twenty-eight dollars. Gioia went to the food store in Queens two times and bought the amount of food he could afford for that week. During that week, he felt tired and sick because he wasn’t eating healthy food. He also gained a lot of weight during his challenge. Gioia’s goal was to expose the current issue of the food stamp problem that is currently plaguing the lower class of New York City. Eric Gioia’s main motive was to draw attention to the food stamp problem in New York City. He did not have any other motives or was trying to draw attention to himself. He was only trying to draw attention to the food stamp situation. He was trying to show that a person with a typical New Yorker’s salary needs food stamps so they will be able to afford food.
