PRESS KSBY: Local food bank CEO taking on 30 day challenge to raise awareness

Published: February 3, 2015

Imagine having only $6.46 to spend on food each day.

Erik Talkin, the CEO of the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, is taking part in a month long Food Security Challenge. That means Talkin will eat on only $6.46 per day.

That figure is the equivalent of what he would receive in food stamps if he was in need and was single, unemployed, and a non-dependent person, according to the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County.
