Learning and Giving

The SNAP Challenge gives participants a view of what life can be like for millions of low-income Americans living on the average daily food stamp benefit of about $4 per person per day. These ladies divided into teams and shopped for groceries with this budget as their guide.

Their careful shopping and meal planning resulted in over 500 pounds of pantry items, fresh produce, dairy and meat which they had arranged to donate to us! The generous folks at Tyson/Elanco (who helped facilitate the event) topped it off with an unexpected $500 donation! We are so grateful to be the recipient of these generous gifts.
