Event – Hungry for Change Campaign Launch Saturday 10 November

Following the incredible response the recent Thirst for Change campaign received from volunteers and supporters across England and Wales, CAFOD is getting ready to launch its latest campaign, ‘Hungry for Change’.

CAFOD Westminster volunteer Nathan Nye is Hungry for Change. Are you?

The campaign aims to bring forward some of the difficult questions relating to food distribution around the world. For example, why do a billion people worldwide still go without when enough food for everyone is being produced? Hungry for Change will try to find some of the answers by challenging the power imbalances that exist with the way food is grown, sold and shared around the world.

A launch event is to be held on Saturday 10 November at Westminster Cathedral Hall, Ambrosden Avenue, London SW1P 1QW. The day will begin with coffee from 10:30 am with an official start at 11.00 am and finish at 5pm. Guests are invited to bring food to share.

Events on the day will include:

  • Talks from Father Joe Komakoma, longstanding CAFOD partner and General Secretary of the Southern African Bishops Conference, and theologian teacher David McLoughlin, among others.
  • The creation and enjoyment of an enormous shared feast.
  • The first Hungry for Change campaign stunt which will take place in Westminster Piazza.
  • A short ‘Lobbying to create change’ workshop
  • Plus ‘a few additional surprises!’

This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate CAFOD’s previous work and campaigns, discuss important issues and personal experiences with other campaigners and have a great day out as part of CAFOD.
