Monday 17th October, 2016.

13 national food poverty charities, including Church Action on Poverty, Trussell Trust, Fareshare, Magic Breakfast and Sustain have come together to launch a campaign to End Hunger in the UK.  It started today with a Big Conversation which will continue across the UK until March 2017. Individuals, food banks, food projects, local food networks and others are all invited to join in the Conversation and ask the question: What does our government need to do to End Hunger in the UK?

How can I get involved?

Hold your own Big Conversation event. It can be a forum, a coffee morning or an informal gathering. It could be at a church, a food bank, another food project, or any other venue. Ask everyone at your event to write their answer to the Big Conversation question on a paper plate, and post a picture of them holding it on social media using the hashtag #EndHungerUK. Send all your plates to your local MP and invite them to step up to the plate as well. 

Step up to the Plate yourself.

Take your own paper plate selfie, share it on social media, and show your support for the campaign, using the hashtag #EndHungerUK

Where can I get advice and resources?

A quick guide and a range of campaign resources are available for download on the End Hunger UK website.

Thank you for helping to ensure that people don’t go hungry for whatever reason.
