The SNAP Challenge: eating on $4.50 a day.

September is Hunger Action Month.  A youth advocate details her SNAP Challenge (Four Days In) from August 2013.  SNAP is the current name for food stamps.

I may have traumatized my poor TL -- because I Tweeted every one of Ron's days -- after I happened on the CEO of Panera Bread, Ron Shaich.  Ron just completed his SNAP Challenge.

Here's his week on SNAP (including an early prep day).

Day One:  Prepping for the Challenge

Day Two

Day Three:  Face of Hunger

Day Four:  How It Feels

Day Five:  "It's About Life"

Day Six: Solutions

Day Seven:  Reflections as my SNAP Challenge Concludes

Day Eight 

If you want to help raise awareness, there's a variety of ways; you can dine out during the month of September, use the orange logo on your Twitter or Facebook page/icon, help turn your state orange... even donate or volunteer, at PaneraCares or your local food bank.

PaneraCares accepts an hour of volunteering for a meal, in case you're wondering.  They're non-profit.
