Preparing for a Challenge

My name is Aaron Smullin and I am the Public Relations Coordinator for Second Harvest Community Food Bank. I will be joining David Davenport on the Food Stamp Challenge this week.

As I prepare to take on the Food Stamp Challenge I feel that this will indeed be a challenge. I think about just how little food $28 will buy. I also think that yes, it will be hard, but I’m only doing this for a week but many are on Supplemental Nutrition Assistance benefits for an average of two years. I also think about how privileged I am when I’m home eating my meal because 52,000 of our neighbors are food insecure and don’t know where their next meal will come from. I truly feel that this will be an eye-opening experience for me and will allow me to be a better advocate for so many of our neighbors.
