FIX THE FOOD SYSTEM
We are very excited to tell you that our new campaign Fix the Food System has launched. We need you to be part of it, and to help bring the campaign to others in your parish.
We have launched this campaign because the way we produce, process and transport food isn’t working. Giant corporations put profits before people,
and most of the 800 million people worldwide who don’t get enough to eat are small farmers. In addition, the global food system is one of the biggest
drivers of climate change. We need alternative food systems that protect the planet and enable those who grow our food to make their own choices
and earn a dignified income.
In this new campaign, we are drawing attention to the injustice of the current food system, whilst highlighting the alternatives. Communities who work
with us are leading the way, growing food in ways that are good for people and the planet. We are urging the UK government to play its part in fixing the
food system, and we need Catholic parishes to get involved to help bring about change.
Please check the parish newsletter for more information.
