Eating on the Edge Challenges You to live on the #PeelPovertyDiet for 48-hrs


From October 14 to October 16, the United Way of Peel and Sheridan College are challenging you to live on the #PeelPovertyDiet for 48-hrs. Over the 48-hrs participants are encouraged to see how long they make the typical assortment of goods that a food bank user would receive last.

Below is a list of items you can consumer over the 48-hr period:

  • 1 juice box (250ml) or small container of milk (250ml)
  • 1 small can of soup (10oz/284ml)
  • 1 package of instant oatmeal (43g)
  • 1 of the following source of protein (175g tin of tuna or 175g tin of chicken or 1 egg or 3 tbsp of peanut butter
  • 1 small tin of fruit or vegetable (8oz)
  • 1 small potato or 1 small onion
  • 1 granola bar
  • In addition you may choose five non-food pantry items (i.e. coffee, tea, salt, pepper, seasoning, vinegar, honey, flour, sugar, oil) to use in addition to the above items

*No accepting freebies during the 48hrs!*

If this is all you had to eat for 48hrs, would you last? Take the challenge and try the #PeelPovertyDiet. Register your team or individually at or join the Sheridan Business team.

The first 20 people to sign up before October 9th 5pm and fill out the Eating on the Edge form will receive a 48-hrs Tool Kit that includes a variety of food items you can eat during the event.
