And so ends the Welfare Challenge for us. We had no idea the toll that it would take when we decided to do it. Low energy, hunger pains, migraines and frustration have been omnipresent during this challenge. Without use of our pantry and our spices the food that we made was bland and simply used for fuel – if that.
Name: Paul M. Taylor Live: Mt. Pleasant – Vancouver About myself: Right to Food Activist and executive director of the Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood House Why doing the Welfare Food Challenge: Those who built the Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood House put the Right to Food at the heart of our work, as nutritional vulnerability was a theme familiar to all. We recognize food to have the amazing ability to bring people together and the basis for building friendships and community.
