HOUSTON Houston Mayor Annise Parker will join the Houston Food Bank President/ CEO Brian Greene in a Food Stamp Challenge on Sunday.

The mayor will challenge herself, spending no more than $4 for her meals on that day. Four dollars is the average for an individual who is part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps.

An estimated 785,000 Texans rely on this program to help them purchase nutritious food from local grocery stores.
