Want to know what it’s like to depend solely on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) for the food you eat? Join us and find out. This 5-day experience is not comparable to the everyday struggle many people face to secure an adequate healthy food supply, but it does give us the opportunity to walk in someone else’s shoes and gain a better understanding of their challenges. We’re doing it August 27 – September 2. Visit our Facebook page for updates.
During the challenge, each person can spend up to $4.23 per day for food and beverages. The average benefit for a SNAP recipient or $21.15 per person for 5 Days. You do not have to spend the same amount every day. Just don’t spend more than $21.15 per person for the 5-day period. All food purchased and eaten during the Challenge must be included in the total spending.
