CAFOD display stand at Sheffield Hallam University for Fairtrade Fortnight.

This year CAFOD Hallam are continuing to host an event which has taken place in Sheffield Hallam University for the past few years. On Tues 4th March until Thurs 6th (inclusive) CAFOD will have a presence in the University as part of the Chaplaincy’s Fairtrade Fortnight events programme.
We have put together a display which highlights issues surrounding hunger; food and the needs of small-scale farmers. Particularly the need to purchase food and goods traded fairly. Using both Fairtrade and CAFOD resources we will be asking students and staff to think about what they consume and how they purchase their food. We will also be asking everyone who visits the stand to ‘Act’ by completing The Fairtrade ‘stick with Foncho’ and CAFOD’s ‘Hungry for Change’ Campaign cards as a way of getting our point of view across and making our voices heard.
The stand will be located outside the main Dining Room in the University and will be attended during lunchtimes (12.30-1.30pm)by CAFOD volunteers to offer information and insight into the materials displayed.
Our thanks go to the Chaplaincy team for their support and facilitation of our involvement in this event.
