Brady calls on people to participate in food stamp challenge

U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, D-1, of Philadelphia, is calling on people to participate in a weeklong Greater Food Stamp Challenge. 

The challenge, sponsored by the Jewish Federation and the Coalition Against Hunger, runs through April 29. Participants, including Brady, are attempting to live on $5 worth of food a day, the average food stamp benefit, during every day this week. 

“I agreed to do this to demonstrate how extremely difficult it is for struggling families to feed themselves day after day,” Brady said in a prepared statement. “I’m doing it for a week, but for too many, nearly one in seven people in this area, this is what they face daily.”
