God created an abundant world with enough food for everyone, yet one in eight people go hungry each day. The way food is grown, sold and shared often doesn’t work for the world’s poorest people.

At CAFOD, we work with our partners to equip communities with the means to put enough food on the table, by training farmers to grow more food, feeding children in emergencies and helping people to earn a living so they can feed their families.

We also campaign for a fairer food system because power is concentrated in the hands of global companies, investors and governments, sidelining small-scale producers and consumers across the world.

We believe that more targeted aid for small scale farmers, along with better checks on the power of global food companies will help alleviate the hunger crisis.

Our Hungry for change campaign ended in May 2014 and over 60,000 of you joined us in asking David Cameron for action on these issues. Thank you.

We were also part of the Enough Food for Everyone IF campaign, which saw 200 organisations rally together in the run up to the 2013 G8 summit, raising their voices against the scandal of global hunger.

See what we achieved together with the video above.

But our work to tackle world hunger isn’t over. Our partners tell us climate change is threatening the progress made in making sure poor families have enough to eat. And the problem is keeping people trapped in poverty.
