Get involved with the IF campaign across the North

29th Jan 2013

The world produces enough food for everyone, but not everyone has enough food. Millions more people are going hungry. This is not only unfair or unjust, but also totally preventable. Northern campaigners didn't need to be asked twice to go out and show their support for the IF campaign.

From Manchester to Liverpool, York, Leeds and Newcastle, we have seen campaigners bringing  Enough Food for Everyone If to life. 

In Leeds, Fabian Hamilton MP joined Leeds-based campaigners to run a market stall selling staple food from across the world to launch 'Enough Food for Everyone IF'

In York, campaigners took IF to the streets and to their local media- check them out!

Manchester City Council was the first Council in the Uk to join the campaign.And possibly to have the youngest supporter holding a banner. See little Felix enjoying his first ever demo. 

In Newcastle, Ian Mears MP and campaigners gathered to demand enough food for everyone in St Thomas Church. 

Wondering what it is all about? Then you cannot miss IF training days in the North!
