Food Stamp Challenge

November 11-19, 2017

Beginning the week of November 5th Your Way Home will organize a challenge for willing participants to eat on a food stamp budget for a week or a day.  We would ask participants to submit written or video dialogue of their experiences.  This dialogue will then be pushed out to our networks during Hunger and Homelessness Week (beginning Nov 11).  

PARTICIPATION GUIDELINES

•Each person should only spend $4.75 per day on food and drink.

•All food purchased and eaten in this time must be counted in total spending - this includes dining out.

•During this time, do not eat any food purchased prior to the start of the Challenge.

•Whenever possible, avoid accepting free food from family, friends and coworkers since these opportunities are not always available to those in need.

•Eat as healthy as possible, keeping in mind that this is how many people eat every day, whereas you can make up for lost nutrients next week.
