End Hunger UK Campaign Conference 2018

16 October 2018 14:48 - 16 October 2018 00:00
Central Hall Westminster, Storey's Gate, Westminster, London, SW1H 9NH, United Kingdom

Come together with other campaigners and food poverty activists to discuss how we can work towards a UK where everyone has access to good food and no one has to go to bed hungry.

Speakers include;
Nadhim Zahawi MP, Minister for Families and children
Emma Lewell-Buck MP who has worked extensively on household food insecurity
Rt Rev Tim Thornton, Bishop at Lambeth and Trustee of Feeding Britain
Alison Garnham, Chief Executive of Child Poverty Action Group
Ann Jones, vice chair of the National Federation of Women's Institutes
Professor Jon May, Chair of Trustees, the Independent Food Aid Network
Emma Revie, new Chief Executive of the Trussell Trust

.... and many others, including people who have first-hand experience of being caught up in hunger, and those who work on the frontline tackling it. And two poets!

Debates will include discussion of what it will take to end hunger, ensuring children get food 365 days a year, the future of our benefits system, and the need to measure household food insecurity. There will be workshops on activism, the right to food, and working in your community.

A limited number of travel bursaries are available for unwaged/low waged individuals. Please email info@endhungeruk.org for further information.
