Ending hunger by 2025

“We are in front of a global scandal of around one billion – one billion people who still suffer from hunger today. We cannot look the other way and pretend this does not exist.” –- Pope Francis, 9 December 2013

Caritas believes that it is a scandal that nearly a billion people are hungry in a world that has enough resources to feed everyone. Launched in December 2013, the One Human Family, Food for All campaign aimed to:

  • Raise awareness of the hunger crises
  • Explore how Caritas programmes are helping families feed themselves
  • Encourage people to learn more about hunger and ways to solve it
  • Call on governments around the world to guarantee a right to food for all
  • End systemic hunger by 2025


The campaign officially closes in December 2015, however it has been just the starting point of our journey to end hunger. Continue the important work started by the campaign by:
