Enough Food For Everyone IF Event at Hyde Park

On Saturday 8th June there will be an amazing event in Hyde Park, London. Thousands of people will be coming together to raise their voices against the scandal that one in eight people across the world do not have enough food, even though we know there is enough food for everyone. If we make enough noise, G8 leaders will have to act. Will you join us?

Saturday 8th June marks the day of the hunger Summit in London and the start of our big 10-day push to the G8. This will be your chance to join others from around the world in a once-in-a-lifetime afternoon of activity and to add your voice to the powerful political message that we will deliver to the G8 leaders at the summit.

What’s Happening?

11am    Start of activities across London, including ecumenical faith service at Westminster Central Hall, followed by a procession to Hyde Park.

1pm     Gates open in Hyde Park for the event

2-5pm   The main event takes place, including activities for young people, an installation and a main stage programme.
