An Alliance for Global Action

Malnutrition and hunger is a global health crisis, responsible for the deaths of millions of people every year. Despite being preventable, it takes a child's life every 11 seconds.

“Over 30 million people don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Famine is ultimately the greatest political failure anyone could preside over. There is an opportunity for the UK to step up, but it’s going to have to step up with actions, not just words.”

David Miliband

“Investment in nutrition has a key multiplying effect. It plays a critical role in health, education advancement and gender equality. And it is fundamental to the achievement of most of the SDGs.”

“No social system, ideology or principle of justice can tolerate a world in which the spiritual and physical potential of hundreds of millions is stunted from elemental hunger or inadequate nutrition.”

Millions more children do not have access to the minimum nutrition they need to grow, develop and reach their full potential.

Our alliance will bring together leaders from scientific, business, finance, military, diplomatic, faith, philanthropic and civil society backgrounds, united in our determination that the UK should be at the heart of global efforts to tackle malnutrition and hunger.

In 2015, the world promised to end hunger by 2030. Today, with a rapidly ticking clock, we are dangerously far from reaching that goal.
