Join us today by participating in the Food Stamp Challenge - a challenge to live for 1 week on the average food stamp allotment. Rabbis and cantors across the nation are taking the Food Stamp Challenge in order to help them better understand how the program works on a personal level and to highlight the continued need for and importance of feeding programs to alleviate hunger in the United States.
For one week, from Friday September7th through Thursday, September 13th, 2012 or Sunday November 11th - Saturday November 17th, 2012 participants will live on the nationwide average food stamp benefit. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which is responsible for administering the Food Stamp Program, the nationwide average monthly benefit in 2010 was $133.79, approximately $4.50 a day or $1.50 a meal.
