2017 Utah SNAP Challenge

From September 15-21, Utahns Against Hunger will be hosting its third Utah SNAP Horizon CardChallenge. The SNAP Challenge gives participants a glimpse into some of the struggles faced by millions of low-income Americans who are trying to put food on their tables. Participants use the average federal SNAP benefit ($4.20 per person/per day) as their budget for all food and drinks. Participants are encouraged to join the challenge for 7 days, but also have the option to commit to 1, 3, or 5 days. The Challenge provides an opportunity for participants to experience how difficult it is for families living on SNAP to simultaneously avoid hunger, afford nutritious foods, and stay healthy with limited resources.

We are also inviting Utah’s congressional delegation and other state elected officials to participate in the Challenge. Utah’s Members of Congress will play an important role in preserving and protecting SNAP in the budget and in the upcoming Farm Bill. We encourage all participants to reach out to their elected officials and encourage them to join the Utah SNAP Challenge.

To end the challenge, UAH will be hosting a screening of the documentary “A Place at the Table,” starring Jeff Bridges. This will take place on Thursday, September 21 at 6 pm at Salt Lake Community College South City Campus. More details will be posted closer to this event.
