CONGRESS: Aguilar, wife eat on $4.73 a day

Rep. Pete Aguilar and his wife Alisha completed a week-long SNAP challenge, where they could not spend more than $4.73 per person, per day on food – the average benefit for California’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients. Rep. Aguilar and his wife did the challenge to raise awareness for nutrition and hunger throughout the Inland Empire and to better understand what thousands of families on SNAP throughout San Bernardino County go through every day. Jeff Horseman of the Press Enterprise has the story here.
