Enactus St. Lawrence College - Manage Your Money Logo

The Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), a student loan used by thousands of Ontarians, only allocates a $7.49 budget for food. Recognizing this issue, we have developed our cookbook, Recipes for an Empty Wallet, which explains how to eat healthy, homemade food on a tight budget. All of the recipes in our cookbook meet with the Canadian Food Guide requirements, utilize nutritious ingredients and transform them into delicious meals. Downloads for this cookbook have been enjoyed across the globe and have been tracked to South American, Asian, and European countries sparking the creation of French and Spanish versions.
