The Marin Food Bank’s Hunger Challenger, a five-day advocacy campaign during which participants live on food pantry groceries and a $4.50-a-day food stamp budget, started Sept. 9 in Novato.
The Hunger Challenge is meant to mirror the experience of food pantry participants who also receive SNAP benefits — formerly known as food stamps — and ends on Friday, Sept. 13 at midnight.
During an average week, the Food Bank serves more than 147,000 people throughout Marin and San Francisco counties.
The Food Bank will distribute more than 46 million pounds of food to the community this year alone — enough for more than 105,000 meals every day.
