I am in grade 12 at RE Mountain Secondary in Langley. I have decided join my mom and do the Welfare Food Challenge in order to bring awareness to what a person on welfare would have to eat each week.
By making just one post on Facebook about this challenge and posting a picture of the food that we bought it generated questions from some of my friends at school. I have no idea how I’m going to feel but I am willing to try. I want to try and see what it is like to have such little food even if it is just for a week. Welfare doesn’t affect just the adults it affects the kids too
