On Sunday 13th October Feeding Liverpool will show our support for the End Hunger UK Week of Action by taking part in a photo stunt to send a message to our politicians – we’d love for you to join in too. Read our blog below to find out how you can get involved.
What is End Hunger UK?
End Hunger UK is a national campaign which believe that everybody should have access to good food and that nobody should go to bed hungry. They are working to challenge and change the systems and structures within our society that prevent this.
What is End Hunger UK’s Week of Action?
11th- 18th October is the End Hunger UK Week of Action. Groups across the country are taking part in events to show our support for the End Hunger UK campaign – telling our politicians we are not satisfied with the status quo. A new stage of this campaign will be launched on Wednesday 16th October- World Food Day.
Feeding Liverpool are coordinating Liverpool’s photo stunt as part of this campaign – this will be sent along with our End Hunger press release, to our local papers on the 16th October to mark the launch of this phase of the campaign.
When is the photo stunt?
We will meet at 12.15pm on Sunday 13th October at St Georges Church, Everton – where we will walk together to Everton Park to take our photo. This will be immediately after St George’s Harvest Service at 11am – people of all faiths and none are welcome to this service. See the flyer below for details about this service.
Who can take part on the photo stunt?
Anyone interested in ending hunger in Liverpool. Hunger effects all ages – children, accompanied by a parent or guardian, are very welcome to participate in the photo stunt.
What will be involved?
We will take a photo holding up a series of letters to spell ‘ACT NOW TO END UK HUNGER’. This photo message will be used to accompany a press release about the campaign to local media. Please note – if, for any reason, you’d prefer not to show your face in the photo there is the option to hold the letter in front of your face.
How can I find out more about End Hunger UK?

There will also be a short video shown as part of the Harvest Service at St George’s with more information about the campaign. This will also available on our website from mid-October.
