Hungry for Change: Thank you & Next Steps

50,000 CAFOD supporters have taken Hungry for Change actions so far – with more flooding through our postbox each day. It’s an incredible response that shows just how much you want to see change happen.

We’ve come a long way, but there is still more to do.

We still need support for small-scale farmers. The UN has said that investment in this group provides the single biggest opportunity to reduce hunger and poverty. At the moment, powerful companies can still influence government descisions in ways that we cannot see. What we can see is that small-scale farmers and families trying to put food on the table often get a raw deal. This is why we are asking the UK government to ensure lobbying activities are out in the open.
