Can you eat for just $4 a day?

That’s the average amount a Californian on food stamps has to spend on a day’s meals. CBS5 reporter Sue Kwon will take the Hunger Challenge September 21-26. She’ll spend no more than $4 a day on food for the week. Sue will kick off her Hunger Challenge on CBS5’s 6 pm news today, and will give updates on the 6 pm newscast each day of the Challenge. She’ll take viewers shopping, share some cost-efficient but nutrient-rich recipes, and report on the latest news on food stamps and talk about people facing hunger every day in our community.

Each of the Bay Area Food Banks is experiencing unprecedented demand. Find your local Food Bank at and donate now. For more information on the Hunger Challenge, visit
