Weeks worth of ORGANIC groceries on a food stamp budget?

This title caught my eye and I was very interested to read the article and watch the video that went with it.  I learned that 1 in 7 familes are using food stamps.  In the video, "Jennifer" visits a local farmers market (many of them are now taking food stamps) and she also visits Whole Foods.  She even shows what the menu will be.  It is a small menu, but she is creative.  She does go over budget by $5, but she feels that she went a little overboard in the bulk section and got a little to much rice, etc however it can be used for the week after and won't go bad.  Take a you think its doable?
