My Family's SNAP Challenge
My Table magazine asked me to chronicle my family's experience in living on the average amount a SNAP recipient family gets for food - only $3.85 a person. Could we do it?
That's my younger son, Shane, at the dinner table, as we experienced together the challenges of eating on a SNAP (or food stamp) budget - only $107.80 for our four-person family for a week. We made it, and you could, too. It's an eye-opening experience.
The bottom line? Choose between cheap calories or good nutrition.
