On Monday 17th October Derby Diocese partnered with Financial Action & Advice Derbyshire and Public Health to help launch a national campaign ‘End Hunger UK’.
End Hunger UK is the brainchild of the UK Food Poverty Alliance made up of many national organisations, including: Child Poverty Action Group; Church Action on Poverty; Fareshare; First Steps Nutrition; Food Ethics Council; Fabian Commission on Food and Poverty; The Food Foundation; Food Matters; Nourish Scotland; Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming; Trussell Trust; Independent Food Aid Network and Magic Breakfast.
Th alliances’ vision is to live in a country where everyone has access to good food and no one goes to bed hungry.

Hope for Belper recently highlighted the campaign at a concert held by the ‘We Shall Overcome’ grouping of musicians who raised well over £200 for ‘The Basic Idea’ food bank.
Whilst no MPs were able to make the launch of the campaign an open letter is to be sent to all constituency offices highlighting the latest reports and statistics, and asking MPs to join the campaigns ‘Big Conversation’ with their constituents over the next few months.
We will post further details about further local events and what you can do to get involved on this site and our FB page Hope for Belper
