Feeding the world

Along with its recipes and fashionable foodie features the latest edition of the Observer Food Monthly ran an article on the daily struggle for food of the world's refugees. With a feature on the struggle for food in occupied Palestine, 'Bombs, bullets and our daily bread' along with 'Militia, bandits and one meal a day' personal testimonies of refugees in Congo, Uganda, Kenya and Bangladesh, the articles made an important contribution to raising public awareness of food insecurity and hunger.

I followed that article up with a letter to The Observer with a reminder that over a billion people struggle to find enough food to eat every day. The Observer published my letter which you can read by clicking here.
