Last September, people participated in the SNAP Challenge. To those who may not be familiar with the SNAP Challenge, it is an annual event hosted by Feeding America to raise awareness about hunger. Due to last year’s success in raising awareness, I know a few people will be participating in the challenge this month.
People harshly judged Gwenyth Paltrow last year when she had attempted the SNAP Challenge, and ultimately failed. Although her intentions were good, people noted that she choose foods which were not terribly cost effective, versatile, or nutrient dense. It was eye opening to see how far or how little people could really stretch their money.
