A Walk In Other's Shoes - Poverty Challenge - Family

This challenge is asking families to attempt to stay within a social assistance budget for five days. Ontario Works benefits provide a maximum basic needs for a couple with any amount of children is $458.00; this sets the challenge budget at $75.00 per family, or $15 per day. A single parent would receive $344.00 per month, therefore, their challenge budget will be $60.00 or $12.00 per day.

The budget includes all food and drink, entertainment, some personal supplies and transportation costs. Each family will be given challenge cards which will reveal additional challenges to be completed before the end of each day. As the family completes the challenge, they will blog about their experience.

Free pizza

Today will be an easy day for us. Gerry is already at work and I am leaving for work as well so no walking for me!! The neighbours are giving the kids a ride to school today. Our challenge today was- Grandma is coming through town and she brought you a pizza. We already have a meal plan today that we like so we are going to buy some icecream instead of pizza for a treat.
