The New Milford Social Services Department has issued a reminder about Hunger Action Month this month.
Throughout the month, advocates bring attention to the problem of local, national and world hunger.
Residents are invited to participate in a SNAP Challenge.
The challenge consists of living on what a household can buy with the average Connecticut allotment of SNAP (formerly Food Stamps) benefits, which is roughly $4.50 per day.
