Professionals from far and wide across Cheshire East thought this was a brilliant idea and were keen to support it. The young people wanted those working with them to understand what it was like eating on a small budget so challenged them to do the #£21Challenge with some rules set out by the young people…
1)Only £21 per person per week for food, drink, socialising and transport to non-essential activities (the group thought they would let people drive to work).
2)You were allowed to use a number of ‘store cupboard’ items from a list provided.
3)The participants were to let the group know how they stuck to the #£21Challenge through a food diary, receipts, photographs or social media.
4)No collecting large amounts of food from other sources i.e. friends.
