After participating in their SNAP Challenge, our entire team felt a renewed appreciation for what they have, but more importantly, they learned how much the world around them needs their help.

How the snap challenge Works

The SNAP Challenge asks individuals or teams to confront the difficult choices millions of people make every time they go to the grocery store. Participants have to plan out a week’s worth of healthy meals and ‘go shopping’ for the needed items on an extremely modest budget. The participants are each given a list of items to choose from, without knowing the cost, and they are asked to choose what they think they will need to prepare 3 healthy meals for 7 days.

The purpose of the exercise is to show how tough it can be for one person to eat healthy using the average SNAP benefit, let alone an entire family.
