Today is Day 5 of the SNAP Challenge. As Open Farms Director at Open Arms of Minnesota I grow organic vegetables for the Open Arms Kitchen. Along with many of my co-workers and friends at Open Arms we’re taking part in this year’s SNAP Challenge. As part of the challenge my wife and I are both eating on $30.25 apiece for the week leading up to Thanksgiving Day. We’re both following a meal plan (with a few modifications) constructed by the Gwen Hill, Open Arms’ Dietician.
