A Successful SNAP Challenge

Daily Table completed an exercise to verify our belief that we could comfortably provide a month’s worth of nutritious groceries to an individual supporting him or herself on a SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) budget. We found that our shoppers could, in fact, purchase a balanced and wholesome diet with three meals and a snack each day, while on average spending $45/week. Although our prices do fluctuate, and our food supply varies, we are confident that the premise holds true.
