The SNAP Challenge

In South Carolina, the average amount of money allotted to food stamps recipients is now $4.01 per day. We are challenging the College of Charleston Community to learn about the SNAP program by participating in the SNAP challenge November 18-22.

The SNAP Challenge is an advocacy experience that encourages participants to experience what life is like for millions of low-income Americans. Challenge participants are forced to make food shopping choices on a limited budget, and often realize how difficult it is to avoid hunger and  afford nutritious foods.

While living on a food stamp budget for just a week cannot come close to the struggles encountered by low-income families week after week and month after month, it does provide those who take the Challenge with a new perspective and greater understanding.
