Live Below the Line 2014 for $1.75 a day

I was contacted by a PR company about Live Below the Line 2014an innovative campaign that transforms the way individuals think and engage with extreme poverty issues.


So how to do that? Live Below the Line, presented by the Micronutrient Initiative, challenges participants to eat and drink for $1.75 a day for five days – the extreme poverty threshold that 1.2 billion people worldwide must survive on for all of their needs.

From April 28th to May 2nd, 2014, Live Below the Line participants will experience the true meaning of living below the line and can choose to raise funds for Canadian partner organizations including Opportunity InternationalRaising the Village and Ve’ahavta, whose initiatives and programs help eradicate extreme poverty around the world.

There’s no doubt that eating and drinking on $1.75 a day can be a daunting challenge so there’s a full day of recipes that fit within the $1.75/day budget.

Here are a few examples of the recipes that fall under “vegan” – minus the honey AND fish sauce of course:
Breakfast - Smoothie

Lunch - Yellow Split Pea and Vegetable Soup

Dinner - Vietnamese Noodle Salad

I’d love to see if any of you can come up with recipes that fit this requirement.
