My Year of Living on SNAP

I am not poor, but there are many people that are in this world.  They live with challenges that the average person has no concept of.  Several years ago, I read an article talking about how people cannot eat on the amount of money they receive from the government for food through the SNAP program.  I tried a challenge to feed our family of four for $50 per week.  I was amazed at how well I could feed us and learned a lot of skills throughout those two years to help me feed my family very inexpensively.  All of our kids are out of the house now, but this time I am going to document what I do throughout the year as I do the SNAP challenge again, but this time for just two people, my husband and I.  The challenge should be much easier since there are only two of us this time.
