An anti-poverty group has challenged people in BC to eat for a week on the amount you would get if you were a single adult on welfare. Paul Taylor has taken up the challenge. Taylor is a Right to Food activist and executive director at the Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood House. He talks with Redeye host Mordecai Briemberg about why he decided to try eating for a week on $26 and what he hopes it will teach people about the lives of people on welfare.
