The Big IF Fast: 6th June

How much do you want to end hunger? Worldwide, 1 in 8 people can't get enough food. Ever wondered what that feels like? As part of our action around the G8, we’re going to make hunger personal, just for one day, by choosing to go without food so the leaders of the world see how hungry we are for change!

On 17-18 June, the world’s most powerful leaders will meet in the UK at the G8 summit in Northern Ireland. We need them to tackle global hunger. We must make IF happen.

Make it count: register for The Big IF Fast

To ensure maximum political impact, it’s really important that we tell the world we’re fasting. (It would be a shame to give so much up without it getting noticed, after all!) Please make sure that you register your involvement in The Big IF Fast, you can do that here.

In some cities events are being held to break the fast with a big shared meal so why not get involved. To find out more check out the IF Fast page.
