I finished my seven-day SNAP Challenge this weekend without a dollar to spare. The experience has made me even more committed to doing everything we can to find an end to hunger. My heart was very heavy when I finished.

On Monday of this week I forgot my lunch at home. This wouldn't have been a big deal, except that I'm participating in the SNAP challenge this week, and to remain true to it, I could only eat what I've already purchased — my lunch back home.

My dedication to youth programming and community food security is stronger than it has ever been, and I am ecstatic that I was able to move the needle towards progress on these issues in my community.

Clara has short, thinning hair which doesn't quite match her age. It's clear that she isn't in good health but her frail appearance is overshadowed by the strong emotion she displays when talking about the struggles of her family and friends, like Danielle. "I know she goes to bed hungry just so those kids can eat. I go to bed hungry so my kid can eat. That's just what you have to do. What choice do you have?" Clara says as she walks up the steps with the meals she received from the Gleaners' Summer Meals for Kids Program. With tears in her eyes, she turns and says to the volunteers, "You all don't know how much this means to us. I don't know what we would do without it. Thank you."

Because federal benefits offer the steadiest, most reliable source of food support, here at Feeding America we work to accelerate low-income families' access to these benefits. Through the new Online SNAP Referral Pilot Program, we have the potential to give thousands of SNAP eligible Americans the means to become food-secure for the long-term.

Education is the only way I can think of to pull my family up out of poverty. Right now I am enrolled in graduate school full time — on top of operating the daycare. It's my dream that when I graduate, we can be self-sufficient again. Not only that, but that we can give back again as well. I want to be able to give my time and attention to people who are trying to change their circumstances. When you're down and out, it takes a lot of support to turn your life around.
