Can you live on $1.50/Day?

We may earn money from the companies or products mentioned in this post.

This is NOT a sponsored post. Information about the program has been shared with me, and I am sharing it with you in hopes to spread awareness. No compensation has been given for this post.
Could you do it? How would you spend that $1.50 every day if it’s all you had? Would you walk to work, or forgo eating? Maybe all you could afford is a loaf of bread – and perhaps you aren’t working because you can’t afford to get to work. 
That is the reality facing 1.2 Billion people today.
So could you do it? Would you do it to raise awareness? 
Opportunity International is doing it! Kicking off this initiative is the 2nd Annual Live Below the Line Cook Off. 4 Chefs are coming together to prepare meals that cost less than $1/serving

  1. When I shopped last year within the average food stamp recipent budget it was very eye opening how little and how poorly you have to eat. Fruits and vegetables were a luxury.
