Could you survive on just a few dollars per day without going hungry? Experience what life can be like for struggling households in D.C. and across the country that receive SNAP benefits.

Most participants take the Food Research & Action Center’s SNAP Challenge for one week and discover they have to make difficult food shopping choices, and often realize how difficult it is to afford nutritious foods, and stay healthy. While living on a SNAP budget for just a week cannot come close to the challenges encountered by low-income families week after week and month after month, it does provide those who take the Challenge with a new perspective and greater understanding.
