Only 8% of UK adults believe they’ll see the end of hunger in their lifetime, according to new research by The Hunger Project UK. Yet, hunger is arguably the world’s greatest solvable problem 👉 we already produce enough food to feed everyone.
Hunger is not only a problem of scarcity, but of inequality and unsustainable systems. And our generation has the power to fix that.
We are supporting The Hunger Project and World Hunger Day to create a more just and sustainable food system, where everyone has access to healthy, affordable food.
