Stanley Bronstein Interviews Leanne Brown


Leanne is an advocate for a better food system focused on a return to home cooking. As the final project for her master’s degree in Food Studies at NYU, she created Good and Cheap, a beautiful cookbook of recipes designed for a $4/day food stamps budget — and she released a PDF of the book free online. After it went viral, she decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign for print copies with a “give one, get one” model, like TOMS Shoes.

In her spare time, she leads grocery store tours in Bushwick, Brooklyn for Share Our Strength’s – Cooking Matters at the Store program. Before moving to New York, Leanne worked in city politics in her hometown of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Leanne and her partner Dan once bicycled 2,700 miles across Japan, Australia, and New Zealand (all on bikes with just one gear).
