THE STORY:

What is the #FoodBankNYCChallenge?

Attempt to live on a food stamp budget for one week. That's only $1.38 per meal.

Why now?

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. 

Ready to share your experience?

- Share on social media by tagging #FoodBankNYCChallenge - and don’t forget let us know on TwitterFacebook and Instagram.

- Challenge a friend:  “You CAN DO something to end hunger. I challenge [YOUR FRIEND'S NAME] to take the #FoodBankNYCChallenge OR donate to the cause."
