Participant bio – June Sanders
Name: June Sanders
Live: Vancouver, BC.
About myself: I am an outreach worker and student. Soon I will be a high school teacher
Why doing the Welfare Food Challenge: Everyday, I witness the short and long term effects of a grossly ineffective system of wealth redistribution that serves to perpetuate (rather than improve) the social and economic lives of so many in our community . I am joining this challenge because I want to raise awareness of what it means to rely on provincial benefits to meet ones basic needs in the City of Vancouver. 26$ a week for food? Most people spend more than that on coffee each week.
