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 firstname.lastname@example.org so we can share them with the congregation.
