2014 SNAP Challenge Blog

For the last four years, ACAA, community agencies, and individuals have taken part in the SNAP Challenge.  The 2014 SNAP Challenge was held from Oct 6-13th.

The SNAP Challenge is a weeklong opportunity to better understand the tough choices individuals must make when living with food insecurity.  While this is an opportunity to gain a small glimpse into the lives of community members, our hope is to engage you and the community in a greater conversation surrounding the critical issue of hunger.
