A guide to IF
Nearly one billion people go to bed hungry every night and three 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.
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.
Enough Food For Everyone IF we give enough aid to stop children dying from hunger and help the poorest families feed themselves.
Enough Food For Everyone IF governments stop big companies dodging tax in poor countries.
Enough Food For Everyone IF we stop poor farmers being forced off their land and grow crops to feed people, not fuel cars.
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.
