Spreading the Hunger for Change!

Our neighbours at CAFOD Brentwood spent the weekend before last promoting the Hungry for Change campaign, at the V Festival in Hylands Park, Chelmsford.

Denise and nine CAFOD volunteers – including Matthew from the Southwark Diocese – collected a fantastic 1149 signatures for the petition to David Cameron; a petition which highlights the fact that whilst the world produces enough food to feed everyone, 870 million people don’t have enough to eat.

The team did a brilliant job and you can read more about what they got up to, and how they spread the word, here!

And if you haven’t already, you too can contact David Cameron via the CAFOD website. The food system is failing the poorest people because the balance of power is tipped towards global companies, rather than families trying to put food on the table. We are asking the Prime Minister that aid is directed to small-scale farmers, especially women, to help them access markets and increase their income, bargaining power and voice on decisions, and for checks on the power of global food companies, requiring them to report on the lobbying they do and their impact on human rights – to ensure that works in global supply chains get a fair deal. Please add your voice and tell Mr Cameron that you too are hungry for change.
