There's enough food for everyone, yet one in eight people go hungry each day. The way food is grown, sold and shared isn't working for the world’s poorest people. We can change this injustice.

We believe God created an abundant world. But our food system concentrates power in the hands of global companies, investors and governments, sidelining small-scale producers and consumers across the world.

Our Hungry for change campaign calls for empowering aid for small-scale farmers and checks on the power of global food companies. Email the Prime Minister now for a fairer food system >
