When you sign up we’ll send you your pack. It will contain your toolkit, recipe book, posters and some items to help you store your rations. It will also contain a shopping list to purchase the following items:
Rice – 1.92kg*
Flour – 400g*
Lentils – 170g
Dried chickpeas – 85g
Tinned sardines – 125g
Tinned kidney beans – 400g
Vegetable oil – 250ml
Tip: If you are vegetarian or vegan, or have a food allergy, you can substitute any items you can’t eat for an alternative ingredient (use the same weight) e.g. swap sardines for tofu.
When you have filled your box, you will get a shock – it’s not much for a week!
*Ration Challenge coupons
You will also find two food ‘coupons’ in your welcome pack for rice and flour. They’re representative of the coupons many refugees are given by the UN or other organisations that can be exchanged in local shops for essential staple foods, such as rice and flour. 420g of rice is representative of what is distributed by Act for Peace, and the additional 1.5kg of rice and 400g of flour from other organisations makes up your Ration Challenge experience.
