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.
We are a family of 4 (boys ages 12 and 14). We are going to spend $57 for a week, based on 2 adults and the kids I decided to have them count as half and adult.
I work in the school system and know if many families who are struggling to make ends meet. I also hope to raise awareness with our own boys about how they can help and also for them to have a “taste” of what it’s like to have to budget for our food.
