With the global food crisis looming larger and larger every day, we’re issuing a challenge to people – eat nothing but the rations a person might receive in a refugee camp (or after being hit by a cyclone) for three days. You can read more about it here.

A daily ration is 400 grams of cereal (rice, flour, oatmeal, cornmeal, etc.), 50 grams of pulses (lentils, beans, etc.), 50 grams of oil, and 5 grams of salt. Plus water. Nothing else.

Do you think you can do it? If you follow the link above, you can find a video of a family that tried it.

Our family is thinking of trying it, but the girls are reluctant to do it while they’re in school, so perhaps in July. “But not during Folk Fest,” say the girls, “cause we HAVE to have whale’s tails.” Perhaps we’ll do it in the days leading up to Folk Fest.
