BENEFITING: Food Bank For New York City
What is the #FoodBankNYCChallenge?
Attempt to live on a food stamp budget for one week. That's only $1.38 per meal.
Congress cut food stamps twice since 2013 , and soup kitchens and food pantries saw an immediate increase in visitors. New Yorkers can’t afford any cuts to Food Stamps - learn more about the cuts here.
The#FoodBankNYCChallenge raises hunger awareness and deepens your understanding about the struggle to afford food on a food stamp budget.
How do I take the challenge?
Use $29 per person for all your food for 7 days. Share your experience, challenge a friend, and challenge Congress to strengthen food stamps.
