Could you eat like a refugee for a day?

In times of conflict, drought, or other crisis, people need food fast. One way to ensure that they get the food they need to survive is through the distribution of ration meals.

What is a typical ration meal? The World Health Organization says a typical ration consists of 450 grams of cereal, 50 grams of pulses, 50 grams of oil, and 5 grams of iodized salt per person per day.

In refugee camps around the world, people are given rations that may consist of items such as beans, rice, sorghum, maize, oil, and salt.

For the 2019 Ration Meal Challenge, we are encouraging participants to prepare the recipe below.

Help ADRA save lives in times of crisis.
