Food advocacy campaign launched for World Food Day

30 August 2011

The move comes as the Council of Provinces of Africa makes an appeal for the 12.4 million famine victims in east Africa.

And it builds on the calls by Anglican leaders in some of the G20 richest countries in the world earlier this year for measures to increase food production in developing countries.

A key part of the resource pack are model letters calling on the international community to provide long term support for farmers as well as immediate help for the starving.  There are also a briefing and suggestions for action to keep the food crisis high on the public agenda.

The pack is available on the food advocacy page of this website.
