We all know what it feels like to be hungry. But do we know what it feels like to suffer from hunger?
Right here in the District, one in eight households face a constant struggle to get food on the table. For families who qualify for Food Stamps - totaling $30 a week per person - the expense of healthful foods is often out of reach.
To help raise awareness about the situation, Father John is taking the Food Stamp Challenge from October 9 to October 15 - trying his best to eat on only $30 a week. Please follow his journey with us here!
