Coming to Australia as an asylum seeker means facing many challenges – and those challenges don’t stop once they’re out in the Australian community either. Most asylum seekers don’t have work rights, so many have either no income or a very small income. The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre claims that on average, asylum seekers have just $20 per week to spend on food. Part of the solution may be a mobile market place where asylum seekers can buy essentials like fruit and vegetables at a quarter of the price. It’s a project by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre called the Food Justice Truck.
