Living on $2 a day not as hard as it sounds

Last week, Brian Carlton spoke with 7XS General Manager Annie McKay, congratulating her on successfully completing the Live Below the Line challenge.

Raising funds and awareness, Live Below the Line requires participants to live below the poverty line of just $2 a day, for five days.

Brian, who usually blows his weekly budget in just one morning, was concerned that $2 a day would be nowhere near enough to live off.  

Today, Tas Talks listener, Cameron Mojgani from George Town joined Brian in the Tasmania Talks studio to prove just how wrong he was, bringing with him about a weeks worth of meals for under $8.00.
