Hungry for Change Icon

Frank Sudlow with Confirmation Candidates receiving the Icon from Sr Esther

Confirmation candidates from Sacred Heart Parish in Northampton were among the first to see, and hold, a new Icon of the Feeding of the Five Thousand created by Sr Esther of Benedictine Community and donated by the Community to CAFOD in support of our Hungry for Change Campaign.  The Icon shows Jesus sharing five loaves and two fish and in that sharing the whole multitude had enough and 12 baskets of food to spare.

Hunger is the greatest scandal and the greatest challenge facing our generation.  That’s why nearly 100 leading charities, including CAFOD, want to make 2013 the beginning of the end of the global hunger crisis.

It is hoped that this Icon will help us reflect on the importance of sharing the riches of creation so that all have enough to eat.

There is Enough Food for Everyone IF…

IF we force governments and investors to be honest and open about the deals they make in the poorest countries that stop people getting enough food.

IF governments keep their promises on aid, invest to stop children dying from malnutrition and help the poorest people feed themselves through investment in small farmers.

IF we stop poor farmers being forced off their land, and use the available agricultural land to grow food for people, not biofuels for cars.

IF governments stop big companies dodging tax in poor countries, so that millions of people can free themselves from hunger.
