What should I do?

We urge you to host your own Big Conversation event. This can be a forum, a coffee morning or an informal gathering. The topic of the Big Conversation is ‘how to end hunger in the UK’. We want to hear your thoughts, stories and ideas.

When should I do it?

We are asking you to hold a Big Conversation any time between October 2016 and March 2017 to add your voice to our national call for action.

Why get involved? 

Our vision is to live in a country where everyone has access to good food and no one goes to bed hungry. Add your voice to thousands of others, and help build a groundswell of pressure on politicians and government so that they take the issue of hunger in the UK seriously. Join the campaign and play your part in ensuring that people don’t go hungry for any reason.

It’s time to step up to the plate

Ask everyone at your event to write their answer to the Big Conversation question on a paper plate, and post a picture of them holding it – or just the plate, if they prefer – on social media using the hash tag #EndHungerUK. You could also send all your plates to your local MP and invite them to step up to the plate as well.

End Hunger UK is supported by many national organisations, including: Child Poverty Action Group; Church Action on Poverty; Fareshare; First Steps Nutrition; Food Ethics Council; Fabian Commission on Food and Poverty; The Food Foundation; Food Matters; Nourish Scotland; Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming; Trussell Trust; Independent Food Aid Network and Magic Breakfast.
