EMPTY BOWL – Blogging Assign #1 – Week #1: What would you do??

As reported on the World Food Day website, Poverty forces people to make choices in countries where the yearly income per person is $100 or less. How would your family live on $100/year per person? What would you do without? Why? What would you eat?

    If me and my family only had $100 to live off we would spend it on the necessities. Only the things that we really need like water food and a place to stay.

    if my family had only $100 per year to live off we would buy tools to build a place to keep warm,and use any money that is left over will be spent on food,and emergencies.

    If me and my family only made 100 dollars a year per person we would only make 200 dollars a year. If we were only to live with 200 dollars a year we would have to go to homeless shelters or live with other family members. We would have to survive off of food pantries in different communities and begging for food and money off the streets. We would spend money only on essential things. Hoping that the 200 dollars will help us live.

    If my family had to live on $100 , we wouldn’t even be able to live. We would be lucky enough if we did. We would probably want to steal. But we would try to use all of our money just to try to get food and try to live. We would probably have to sell a lot of our things just to get money, but we’ll try to do anything to get money to survive off of.

    My family consists of 6 people in total, so that makes us receive $600. Even with this amount of money I feel like we would not be able to make it through a year with only $600. The only way we could make it last is to only eat less everyday and actually start looking at the prices of the things we buy. My parents would make sure to get everything they buy at low prices and try to get discounts. I even feel like we could only use $600 on food, water, or try our best to pay the bills. We will not be getting expensive clothes or shoes from these $600 or only what is necessary to buy. All of that will still have to be cheap in order for us to buy it and survive with only $600.

    If we were living off of 100 bucks a person meals would be chips pop and candy no lie. Without it I’d eat the school’s nasty meals everyday

    If my family had to live on $100 we wouldn’t even be able to go to school. I say that because we wouldn’t have no house to live in or any clothes.We probably would be sent to a homeless shelter. things would be hard but we would just had to pushing.

    If my family live $100 dollars per person a year I would hope if we even survive. We might go to a homeless shelter and live there hoping we get treated right. The thing I would have to deal without is not eating breakfast and lunch. The reason why is because its a homeless shelter you’ll have to eat once a day to conserve food. Hopefully I wouldn’t care what to eat as long as I get food.

    If me and my family was to live off just $300 a year , we would honestly have a hard time. We’d really get the house taken because $300 can’t even cover half the mortgage. Plus we need food clothes and other personal items. So I know my phone bill wouldn’t get paid. We’d probably eat from shelters and churches on the day they feed homeless people. If we did survive we’d be very lucky.

    If my family only had $100 per person we would use our money wisely such as only buying our food and essentials that we need.and the rest of the money we will just save the rest.
