Please share what you would like people to know about your experience accessing or relying on the Disability Assistance Benefit. 

We actually got to eat other meat besides hamburger (with the $300 COVID supplement). We ate hamburger for years till we received the $300.00. We got to enjoy eggs more then once a week, fresh fruit and veggies. Us adults had to start skipping breakfast a week before check days, as we would save the food for the kids to eat. Never any fresh milk for us to enjoy for I can’t even recall how many years. Sometimes kids didn’t go to school as there was no lunches for the kids to eat. So kids have to miss a few days of school every month with no lunches. We live below the poverty line. Please keep helping out with the $300 a month.

we’re still below the poverty line. But we got to experience eating good food. Sadly the kids have to be hungry like us adults.

What do you dream support for people with disabilities could look like?

Good food.

BC residents with disabilities have also been invited to share their experiences in a web only component of the project. This is one of those entries.
