The Big *IF*: There Is Enough Food For Everyone...

Nearly 100 leading charities, including CAFOD, want to make 2013 the beginning of the end of the global hunger crisis. It is a major campaign to lobby David Cameron, the prime minister, to use Britain's presidency of the G8 to leverage action on ending global hunger.

There is Enough Food for Everyone….

we force governments and investors to be honest and open about the deals they make in the poorest countries that stop people getting enough food.

governments keep their promises on aid, invest to stop children dying from malnutrition and help the poorest people feed themselves through investment in small farmers.

we stop poor farmers being forced off their land, and use the available agricultural land to grow food for people, not biofuels for cars.

governments stop big companies dodging tax in poor countries, so that millions of people can free themselves from hunger.

The launch of the Enough Food for Everyone IF campaign is supported by One Direction, Orlando Bloom, Natasha Kaplinsky, Bill Gates, David Harewood, David Gyasi, Anjelique Kidjo, Nina Wadia and Myleene Klass.
