Enough Food For Everyone Campaign

Nearly one billion people go to bed hungry every night and two million children die from malnutrition every year. We've made progress in other areas, but hunger is still the great scandal of our age. All around the world, even in the UK, people are struggling to feed their families.

In 2013, the government has promised to provide 0.7% of national income for aid and to host a Hunger Summit. We must make sure they keep these promises. In June, the world’s most powerful leaders will meet in the UK at the G8.

This is our best opportunity to tackle hunger. We must make IF happen.



What’s happening in 2013?

You can find a timeline of the key moments in the Enough Food For Everyone IF campaign in our Get Involved section.



What do we want?

We want our leaders to act on the four big issues that mean so many people do not get enough food.

Aid

Enough Food For Everyone IF we give enough aid to stop children dying from hunger and help the poorest families feed themselves.

Tax

Enough Food For Everyone IF governments stop big companies dodging tax in poor countries.

Land

Enough Food For Everyone IF we stop poor farmers being forced off their land and grow crops to feed people, not fuel cars.

Transparency

Enough Food For Everyone IF governments and big companies are honest and open about their actions that stop people getting enough food.

Together, we can make IF happen.

The more of us who get involved, then the greater pressure there will be on world leaders to tackle global hunger in 2013.

Who is involved?

You.

We want millions of people to share the message “Enough Food For Everyone IF…” so that, together, we’ll be too loud for our governments to ignore. Behind the scenes, the campaign has been joined by a growing movement of organisations.

Even this tiny amount doesn't go where it is needed. A lot of aid goes into prestige projects where most of the money ends up back with the consultants and contractors from the donor countries, and a significant amount into the back pockets of officials.

I have to give the Tories credit for at least protecting the Foreign Aid budget in their Kick-The-UK-Poor Austerity Strategy, but yeah, it seems like there are always problems like this.
