Food Stamp Challenge Culminates in Press Conference at River City Food Bank
Today is the last day of the Food Stamp Challenge and there will be a press conference at 9 a.m. at the River City Food Bank in Sacramento. Participants are encouraged to attend the press conference where they will receive a free “I completed the 7-Day Food Stamp Challenge” sticker.
More than 100 people, from food bloggers to activists and media representatives in the Sacramento region participated in the Challenge. Participants are encouraged to donate the money they have saved or healthy food to the River City Food Bank. One of California Food Literacy Center’s favorite volunteers, Aidan the Short Order Cook, will be present to demonstrate a low-cost healthy recipe he developed that will feed a family of four for just over $3.
