Co-chair, Houston Food Bank f.r.e.s.h. Young Professionals
September is Hunger Action Month, when the Houston Food Bank brings attention to hunger in our community and things that people can do to join the fight against hunger.
f.r.e.s.h. Young Professionals is a group formed a year ago to support the Houston Food Bank. Members of the group will be taking the SNAP Challenge to gain a better understanding of the issues that low income people face in getting sufficient nutritious food.
SNAP, the new term for food stamps, provides on average $4 a day for an individual who qualifies for assistance. People taking the SNAP Challenge try to eat for a week on $28.
The Houston Food Bank can help people apply for SNAP. Inquiries can be made by phone or through the website.
