Food Right Now!

Alliance2015 has launched a new awareness-rasing campaign on hunger

Cesvi, together with ACTED, Concern Worldwide, People in Need and Welthungerhilfe launched Food Right Now, a new awareness raising and education campaign to increase the understanding of the causes, solutions and actions on global hunger and to foster the participation in fighting inequalities.

Hunger is a man-made phenomenon and a political issue that can only be defeated by individual commitment and global engagement of people at every level of the society. Students, young people and teachers will be engaged in activities and national events while being encouraged to take action against global hunger.

Linked to the World Food Day on October 16th, partners launched the campaign through multiple national events. On October 11th, Cesvi announced the launch of the campaign during the presentation of the Italian version of the Global Hunger Index 2012 in Milan. Concern Worldwide started the Food Right Now Campaign Academy on the 4th of October, while the formal presentation of the Food Right Now campaign took place on October 11th  during  the presentation of the Global Hunger Index 2012 in Dublin. In Germany, the Food Right now campaign will be launched on World Food Day 2012 through online worksheets, games and educational materials focusing on land grabbing.
