Join us for SNAP Challenge 2017
During the week of September 25 – 29, Live Well Goodhue County and United Way of Goodhue, Wabasha & Pierce Counties (UW-GWP) are asking hunger advocates to take the SNAP Challenge to better understand what it’s like to eat healthy on a limited budget.
More than 3,350 Goodhue County residents receive SNAP (Food Stamps) assistance and each month they struggle to avoid hunger, afford nutritious foods, and stay healthy with very limited resources.
The SNAP Challenge helps others understand these challenges and raise awareness about the issue of hunger.
How does the SNAP Challenge work?
From September 25 – 29, SNAP Challenge participants will be asked to limit their food expenditures to $4.40 per day, the average daily SNAP benefit for an individual in our area.
Participants will be encouraged to share their thoughts on the experience with friends and family by writing a blog or posting to social media using #SNAPChallenge. Share comments on your social channels and/or on UW-GWP’s facebook page. You may also make comments on our blog posts on the website or submit a blog post for us to use on our website or social channels.
We’ll kick off the challenge with a breakfast on September 25 at 7:30am at the Mayo Clinic Health Systems in Red Wing.
