Living on rations
We’ve designed the Ration Challenge to reflect, as closely as we can, what it’s like to eat rations as a Syrian refugee in Jordan. Your ration pack will contain exactly the same food that is distributed to refugees. You may get a shock – it’s not much for a week!
We’ll send you a ration box, that you will need to fill with food rations to complete your food ration pack. Just a small amount of rice, flour, lentils, chickpeas, beans, fish and oil. And only water to drink. That’s it. No meat, no coffee, no alcohol!
Vegetarian or vegan? You can swap sardines on your shopping list with an alternative e.g. tofu.
If you work hard on your fundraising, you’ll be able to ‘earn’ extra ingredients – for example, a spice or flavouring or a fresh vegetable of your choice – to add to your ration pack.
So the friends, families and colleagues who are willing to sponsor you will be playing a crucial role in helping you make it through the week, as well as providing vital funds to support refugees.
