May 2017. Can you make a meal on $1.47?


Can you make a meal on $1.47?

That is the challenge many families face every day. One in five DC residents receives just $4.40 per day to buy food.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, provides monthly benefits to low-income households to help them buy food. This is an essential program that helps millions of people keep food on the table, but the current benefit level is too low for many.
As we highlight the importance of our work, during Community Action Month, we also want to raise awareness about the obstacles our customers face.

We are hosting a week-long SNAP Challenge! We have asked staff and supporters to limit food and drink spending to $22 for the work-week.

Throughout the week, we'll share their struggles, triumphs, and overall experience. Join in or follow along using
#UPOSNAPChallenge to find out how SNAP benefits affect poverty levels and overall health. This is an opportunity to spread the message to family, friends, and coworkers, about why #SNAPMatters.
