The world produces enough food to feed us all, yet one in eight people go hungry each day. The way that food is grown, sold and shared out is not working for the world’s poorest people. But we have the power to change this injustice.
We believe that God created an abundant world. If we use the earth’s resources with care and share what we have been given, we will have enough for everyone’s needs. But our food system concentrates power in the hands of global companies, investors and governments, and sidelines small-scale producers and consumers across the world.
Our Hungry for change campaign is calling for empowering aid for small-scale farmers and checks on the power of global food companies.
