Of course, the point of the challenge is to raise awareness of the tough choices many Americans have to make. To know what it's like to face a world filled with food without an extra dollar or two for a mid-afternoon snack. To experience the choice between accepting a handout and going hungry. To appreciate the importance of the nation's food banks and the important service they provide.
