There is enough food for everyone #IF

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 3-03-2013 17:30 | Category: Poverty, Developing World



It’s a simple equation. There is enough food in this world for everyone. And even a child can explain that it should be distributed fairly.
That is the idea behind the new campaign ‘Enough Food for Everyone IF’. It is the largest coalition of its kind in the UK since Make Poverty History in 2005.

Enough Food for Everyone IF is a coalition of 100 organisations and counting which have joined together to campaign for action by the G8 on the issue of global hunger.

Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu supports Enough Food for Everyone IF and said: “Hunger is not an incurable disease or an unavoidable tragedy. We can make sure no child goes to bed hungry.  We can stop mothers from starving themselves to feed their families. We can save lives. We can do all of this, IF we are prepared to do something about it. IF we challenge our leaders to take action. IF they listen to us. It’s time the world’s decision-makers came to the right decision on hunger.  It’s time to end the unnecessary suffering caused by the failure of the current food system. We can make hunger a thing of the past IF we act now.”

I hope that our current leaders will eat healthier food than what the kids do in this campaign video.
