When G8 leaders come to the UK this June, they have the power to act on global hunger IF enough of us demand urgent action.
The day will involve tens of thousands of people from across the UK, an ecumenical service, a vast symbolic action, music, big name speakers, something for all the family – and an amazing, unforgettable atmosphere.

You can get your whole community, parish or school involved by making a Big IF out of loaves and fishes from the Hungry for Change action cards. Use the loaves and fishes to write your own messages or prayers for those who don’t have enough food. Please send a photo of your group with your Big IF (with the number of people who have taken part) to firstname.lastname@example.org and bring it with you to London to show just how many people believe we must act to end world hunger.
The G8 summit is our chance to push for changes that could transform the lives of people in poverty. Don’t miss it – be there and help make IF happen.
