Can you live on $610/month? If you’re on welfare, your $610 monthly cheque leaves you with a food budget of $26/week. During the week of October 16, join hundreds of people across the province in pledging to live on ONLY the food you can buy with $26. Take a stand against inadequate welfare rates. Join us in telling the world that it’s time to raise the rates.
