Sponsored by Tyson Foods, the KNOW Hunger Challenge is an interactive event designed to increase hunger awareness and fight food insecurity by offering education about nutritional opportunities through SNAP and first-hand experience with the challenges families commonly face in a budgeted shopping experience.

As groups of 5, volunteers will be given a $100 budget to shop for a weeks worth of food for a family of 4. Teams will be assigned a variety of shopping options accessible from the Chicago Urban League. Following the shopping experience, participants will debrief with guided discussion with a nutritionist and SNAP expert.

 

 

*All food purchased will be donated to the Chicago Food Depository following the event*
