More than 14,000 people took the Ration Challenge and lived on refugee rations to raise money and awareness for communities threatened by conflict and disaster.
They ate the same as a Syrian refugee living in a camp in Jordan. Just a small amount of rice, lentils, chick peas, beans, fish and oil. That’s it. No red meat, no coffee, and no alcohol!

How does the Ration Challenge work?
1 Take the Challenge
We'll send you all the resources you need to take part.
2 Survive on Rations
Eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee during Refugee Week, June 18-24 and put yourself in the shoes of a refugee.
3 Raise Money and Awareness
Share your experience, raise vital funds for refugees and help change attitudes.
What are the Rations?
We've designed the Ration Challenge to reflect, as closely as we can, what it's like to eat rations as a Syrian refugee in Jordan. You'll source the same ingredients that are in a refugee food ration pack and also have the opportunity to earn rewards.
|Dried Chick Peas||85g|
|Tinned kidney beans||400g|
