St Philip Howard Secondary School add their BIG IF to support the Enough Food IF campaign

Pupils and staff from St Philip Howard Secondary School in Barnham, West Sussex have been reflecting on the causes of global hunger.

Around 160 from the school community have added their beautifully colourful and symbolic loaves and fish to the giant display.  The display is a large IF which comes from the campaign – that there is Enough Food For Everyone IF the G8 can make the causes of hunger high on their agenda for their meeting in June.

The photo of their display features Chaplain, Clare Long at the back and representatives from each of the Year 8 tutor groups which took part in the reflection and the campaign.

Schools like St Philip Howard have been adding their call to the campaign from all across the UK.  Love for the poor is a fundamental part of the catholic Faith and when schools enable their pupils to reflect and act on issues like this, they are not only teaching their pupils about their faith but also helping them become wise and truly caring global citizens.

CAFOD, along with over 200 other organisations are saying that:

There is Enough Food for Everyone….

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

For more information about the campaign, or to join us in London on Saturday for a brilliant day of peaceful and joyfuy campaigning, please see www.cafod.org.uk/g8Rally
