Today is the first day of my Live Below the Line challenge for Opportunity, where I eat and drink for $1.50 a day for five days. Live Below the Line is a campaign that raises awareness about the 1.4 billion people who live below the poverty line and have to make $1.50 cover a lot more than food every day.
My wife Jackie and my sister Natalie decided to join me in the challenge as well, which made it a bit easier to add variety to our menu for the day, since we were able to pool our money and spend $4.50 total. Take a look at how we did on our first shopping trip.
Our menu today will consist of:
- Black Beans
- Ramen Noodles
- Roma Tomatoes
