Gwyneth Paltrow's Weird $29 Dollar Grocery Challenge

April 22, 2015 1 min read

By cherry-picking causes and fads, celebrities sometimes try to use their fame for good - somewhat. As if tweeting pictures of her "poverty groceries" was significantly helping those in need, megastar Gwyneth Paltrow can feel like she has helped fix the problem and go back to her regular grocery bill, something I don’t even wantto think about. Not that her heart isn’t in the right place, of course. Chef Mario Batali issues the challenge, trending as #FoodBankNYCChallenge, annually to other celebrities in the name of promoting awareness for the cause. Along with celebs like Sting and Gwyneth, regular people are shopping on a budget of just $1.38 per meal… But not as a promotion, as this is their real, everyday life. While we’re at it, it would be pretty interesting to see Jennifer Aniston go without heating/air conditioning for a week. Maybe Benedict Cumberbatch stops washing his clothes. Or for Robert Pattinson to go a week without showering - Oh, wait. But I fail to see the political prowess behind pretending to buy a week’s worth of groceries on the cheap. Great job, you pretended to be thrifty! Here's her tweet: Gwyneth-Paltrow-food-stamp-challenge-tweet ...Seriously, seven limes? Who taught you how to live?
