RI Food Stamp Challenge

Rhode Island residents are getting put to the test this week.

They're being asked to spend the same amount to eat as someone on food stamps. That amounts to $31.50 a week or a $1.50 a meal. It's all part of a national campaign to raise awareness of funding for food stamp programs.
