Conference 2018

Come together with other campaigners for a UK where no one has to go to bed hungry

Tuesday 16 October 2018 (World Food Day)
10:30 – 16:00
Central Hall Westminster, London

As part of End Hunger UK Week, we will be having our second national conference.

Last year we had over 150 people from across the food movement attending, and speakers including experts in policy and campaigning as well as those with lived experience of poverty. This year we will be even bigger, giving people an opportunity to learn about the issues, get involved in our campaigns, and speak directly to policy-makers.
