Not sure?

Step One:

Visit www.dothemath.thestop.org and take the on-line survey. Many people are not aware that single adults on Social Assistance can receive only $585/month for rent, food and everything else!

Step Two:

Take the Do the Math Challenge and show your support for an immediate $100/month increase to social assistance and set new rates that allow people to meet basic needs.

The Do the Math Challenge is the latest stage in the Put Food in the Budget campaign for an immediate increase of $100 a month for every adult in Ontario receiving social assistance so that they can afford more healthy food.
