make food fair campaign

The Fairtrade Foundation have launched a new campaign – Make Food Fair – which aims to redress the injustices in our broken food system.

Smallholder farmers produce the majority of the world’s food, but they also make up half of the world’s hungriest people. Make Food Fair calls for urgent action to support these 2 billion smallholder farmers.

You can support Make Food Fair through its petition asking David Cameron to support smallholder farmers at the G8 Summit in June. They will hand in the petition to the Prime Minister just before World Fair Trade Day on 11th May.

Sign petition by joining the online march
