Would you be able to buy enough nutritious and non-perishable food to last 3 days… for $10?
This is the challenge that faced our TravelEdgers at our Wesley Mission Corporate Program. Our teams hit the shops in search of food within this budget… what we found was that food is a lot more expensive than we thought… and 3 days worth was definitely a challenge!
This was an eye opening experience and it gave us just a taste of one of the challenges that our homeless face each and everyday.
For anyone that is interested in participating in this corporate challenge we highly recommend it. We fundraised for the past year to participate and then the half day challenge was filled with quizzes, stats, videos, stories and createive team work.
The best thing is, all of the food we bought was donated to Wesley Mission to be distributed immediately to those in need.
