Could You Thrive on $6.65?
Every day, Fife House clients cope with the reality of having only $6.65 to spend on food; a tough task considering steady increases in prices. From April 6-12, 2014, senior staff, board members and stakeholders of Fife House Foundation will drastically restrict their personal food budgets to $6.65 a day to help understand and draw attention to, the poverty and struggle of Fife House’s clients; most of whom live below the poverty line.
