RAISE THE RATES is a coalition of community groups and organizations concerned with the level of poverty and homelessness in British Columbia.
Denver, CO. I am doing this challenge to see the realities people face in the U.S. I also want to see if I can prove that it is possible to eat healthy on a welfare budget. I think that I will be able to have more understanding about the struggles so many American’s face, after completing the challenge. I think that it is amazing how many people survive on less than $30 a week, but my question is can they thrive? Can we meet our nutritional needs on that type of budget? I will paraphrase Victor Frankl; While we cannot always change our circumstances, we can always change our attitudes about them. I hope after this challenge I can encourage others to make the most out of their situation because health has so much to do with our attitudes as well as our nutrition.
