Mayor Accepts Food Stamp Challenge

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman is accepting a challenge to live on less than five-dollars worth of groceries every day for a week.  Three Square Food Bank has launched the “SNAP Experience,” asking local residents to feed themselves on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program allocation of just over four dollars a day.  About one in six valley residents currently struggle with hunger.

    That’s actually pretty good in my opinion. I live off about $20 for a two week period. Not the healthiest diet but, it’s what I can afford.
