We grow enough to feed everyone - but injustices in how the world produces, distributes, prepares and consumes food means one in eight people go hungry every day. Inconceivably, 80 percent of the world’s hungry are at the same time involved in producing food. Many are women small-scale farmers and labourers. They work hard, but their families go hungry due to changing weather patterns and a lack of access to resources like land, water and fertilisers.
Urge our Government to play a leadership role in tackling global hunger by prioritising support to small-scale food producers and doubling aid to food security by 2016.. This money will help these people feed themselves and their families by providing better access to resources, building resilience to climate change and getting more food to market.
