Land is Life at the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival

Campaigning for change article written on the 06 Feb 2013

As part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, Oxfam is hosting this special forum and photo exhibit looking at the local and global dimensions of food security. Lou Pardi to MC discussion, panelist include Elaine Montegriffo, SecondBite CEO, Clancy Moore, Oxfam Australia’s GROW Campaign Coordinator, and more to be announced!

Oxfam’s GROW campaign aims to create a future where everyone has enough to eat. Hunger is the scandal of our time because the world produces enough food to feed everyone, but still 1 in 8 goes hungry. Fixing the broken food system will require cooperation between governments, the private sector and people who consume and grow food. Locally we can all help to grow a better food system by eating food that’s produced fairly and sustainably, and reducing our food waste.
