What will you eat tonight?

People experiencing homelessness often suffer from food insecurity – they do not know where their next meal will be coming from.

As you are already leaving your bed for the night, how about taking it one step further by also eating a cheap & cheerful meal?  As you are preparing your meal, think about;

  • the cost of the food
  • what you need to prepare the meal e.g. stove, oven, utensils etc.
  • how do the ingredients need to be stored? e.g. do they need to be kept cold?
  • would somebody living on the street be able to prepare this meal?
  • what would somebody who is experiencing homelessness be eating tonight?
