Take the SNAP Challenge
Can you eat on just $4.50 a day? The SNAP Challenge encourages participants to get a sense of what life is like for millions of low-income Americans facing hunger. While the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, commonly known as food stamps) provides monthly benefits to supplement the food budgets of families in need, in many cases the benefits are inadequate and families still struggle to put food on the table. Read our overview about the SNAP Challenge and get started today! Let us know you've committed to taking the challenge.
