Student food supply

In November 2007 Minister Plasterk (education) wanted to cut the student grants, thus rectifying the deficit in his budget. The money would be used to raise teacher’s salaries and to help the employment shortage. Because this plan would have had a really negative influence on my personal financial situation, I decided to make this piece, showing the effect such a plan would have if it were to become law. I wrote down the places where I ate every evening, usually at home, except on Fridays I would get my dinner at the food supply (a counter mainly intended for the very poor). This could have become reality if the plan was implemented.
