So many go hungry in this world. 1 in 8 is the figure going around in today's climate. To help make a difference you could celebrate World Food Day (16 October) by registering to Eat Local Feed Global with Oxfamanytime in October 2014. It's free to register. All you have to do is share a lunch or dinner with friends or family, or both. Perhaps even throw in a few workmates into the mix; or you could hold a Hunger Banquet at your school or university. Taking action and getting together this way will help raise awareness as you have a fun filled day supporting Oxfam with their life-changing work.
Once you register, Oxfam will send you a pack that has everything you need to work towards reducing global hunger. Many small actions can create lasting changes that edges towards creating a world where no one has to go hungry. Climate change threatens the quality and amount of food we produce. Taking action encourages the Australian Government to do its fair share about climate change.
