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.
Registered Dietitian – Victoria. I love all aspects of food and nature. As a dietitian I share my passion for food daily. Over the past 16 years, clients have courageously shared their food struggles living on Social Assistance. I am passionate about cooking, harvesting and growing food. Making healthy food delicious, accessible and fun is a key aspect of my job. I have tried to tackle this challenge by making all food from scratch. This challenge will force me to practically reflect on what I recommend and how the advice impacts my clients. I will reflect on my energy level and my ability to functions during my work day, in my social life and with my physical activities. As of mid-afternoon of day 2, I am hungry and it is hard to concentrate.
I will be blogging about my journey at: https://www.facebook.com/fionadevereaux.nutritionist
