Participant bio – Michelle Miller
Name: Michelle Miller
Live: Strathcona, Downtown Eastside, Vancouver
About Myself: I’m a feminist anti-violence worker and follower of Jesus who is always looking for ways to amplify the cries of those on the margins.
Why taking the Challenge: I’m taking the challenge to be in solidarity with my friends and neighbours on welfare and to ask my community to lobby the BC government to raise the rates of social assistance. I embark on this week-long journey with full knowledge that it is my privilege
that allows me to “experiment” with eating on $26/week and that others do not have this luxury.
Worries: That I won’t be able to eat enough veggies!
