About Raise the Rates
RAISE THE RATES is a coalition of community groups and organizations concerned with the level of poverty and homelessness in British Columbia.
Cranbook – I decided to participate in the Raise the Rates, Welfare Food Challenge because I know that this is an important issue for British Columbians and I thought that I could use my position as a City Councillor to help promote this important public issue.
I realize that it will be challenging to spend only $18 on food for a week. I normally spend quite a bit of money on food and so I thought it would be interesting to see if I could manage on such a small sum. Just thinking about participating in the challenge has raised my awareness about how much I spend on food and how difficult it must be for those living on welfare.
