Washington Food Stamp Challenge

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

I propose a petition to have every congressman and President Barack Obama take the Food Stamp Challenge for a month. To live on $31.50 a week in food, $4.50 a day, and $1.50 a meal. the average a food stamp recipient receives nationally. I believe that if prominent members of the house and senate see what it's like to live on Food Stamps, then they would better understand the need for this program.
There are currently 19 signatures. We need 50 signatures!

Petition Background

There is far too much ignorance about hunger today. Too much demonization of the poor who are on SNAP and too much disinformation by those who know little about what being on Food Stamps is really like.
