Event Details

Thank you for taking the SNAP (Food Stamp) Experience and pledging to  face the challenges that many of our Nevada neighbors face each day.  Participating in the SNAP Experience means eating on a budget of $4.06 per day for five days.  This is the average SNAP benefit in Nevada. 

The goal of the experience is to fight hunger by raising awareness of the challenges that millions of Americans face each day trying to make ends meet.  The SNAP Experience can also bring to light many of the myths and misconceptions about this vital Federal Nutrition Program. 

For tips on taking the challenge click here to visit fbnn.org.  Be sure to share your Experience on social media.  Let your friends and co-workers know what you are doing and why.  We would also love to hear about your experience!

Food Bank of Northern Nevada

Our Mission: Feeding the hungry today and solving hunger for tomorrow through community partnership.

The Food Bank of Northern Nevada provides emergency food services to families through a network of more than 140 partner agencies in a 90,000 square mile service area throughout northern Nevada and the eastern slope of the sierra in California. We serve more than 95,000 people each month, half of whom are children and seniors. Last fiscal year, we provided more than 13.9 million meals to neighbors who were hungry. The Food Bank also plays a leading role in collaborating with other committed northern Nevada community members and organizations to address the root causes of hunger.

The Food Bank incorporated in 1983 and has operated as a 501C3 non-profit organization for more than 30 years. We have grown from a small pantry to a regional distribution center helping many families who struggle with hunger.
