snap-logoAfter being challenged by Kenzie Brannon and Chuck Byrd, the youth of Westminster challenge the congregation to take the SNAP Challenge.

SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families. A low-income family of five in North Carolina receives $771 a month for food in the form of an EBT card.

To take part in the SNAP Challenge, which comes from the Durham CROP Hunger Walk organizers, you must:

  • For five days, spend no more than $4.20 per person per day on the food you eat.
  • Donate the additional money you would have spent on food during that time to the Durham CROP Hunger Walk, where 100% of the money raised goes to hunger-fighting agencies locally and around the world.
  • Share your experience on social media with the hashtags #EndHungerNow and #ENDHungerGames. Email any photos or reflections to westminster@wpcdurham.org so we can share them with the congregation.

Get the SNAP Challenge guidelines and register for the SNAP Challenge (Organization you represent: Westminster Presbyterian Church).
