2017 Jewish Community SNAP Challenge

September 10, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Gain a new perspective on hunger in America
More than 43,000 families in our community live on less than $30 per family member for food each week. Can you do it?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program -SNAP_ offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families. Formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, SNAP is the largest program in the domestic hunger safety net.

Put yourself to the test and get the whole family involved! Sign up to take the challenge

Your Food Budget for the Week:
$30/ 1 person
$45/ 2 people
$60/ 3 people
$75/ 4 people

Take the SNAP Challenge:
All food purchased and eaten during the week including fast food and dining out must be included in the total spending. The cost of oils, spices, and condiments you already own are not included. Avoid accepting free food from family, friends, co-workers, receptions or business events.

Shop the SNAP Challenge:
Spend $30 to purchase food for the JFCS Food Pantry for one week’s worth of meals. Take a photo of your purchases and receipts and bring your items to the JFCS Food Pantry during the week.

Share your experience online and in this event! Take photos and post updates as the week goes by! Use #SNAPChallenge2017 and#EndHungerKY in your posts to connect all of our stories together!
