Give your group a glimpse of how difficult it can be to afford healthy meals on a limited budget.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a federal program that helps low-income people put food on the table. Participants in the SNAP Challenge will gain a better understanding of the program by being asked to make healthy & nutritious grocery shopping choices on the average SNAP benefit.
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.
