Right now, 735 million people face hunger and one in three of the world’s population is malnourished.


But the global food crisis is the ‘elephant in the room’ – too often ignored in political discussions and in the media.

It’s a climate crisis, a conflict crisis, and a cost-of-living crisis: it demands a massive and joined-up global response that is currently lacking.

Powerful voices and organisations are coming together to demand our leaders recognise this crisis and take the action needed.

An elephant in the room – no more!
