lincolnshirevhunger2015-8633Lincolnshire V Hunger is a project created by SFM. We believe that it is a basic human right for people not to starve in the 21st century. In 2000 the United Nations set a target to reduce poverty & hunger by two thirds – this objective has not been met.

Our goal: Lincolnshire v Hunger empowers grassroots communities in Lincolnshire to participate with, and work alongside, governments and international institutions to achieve the objective of the UN’s Millennium Development Goal (MDG1 now Sustainable Development Goals) of reducing poverty and hunger by two thirds. This MDG represents one of eight goals signed by representatives of 189 countries in 2000. These objectives were supposed to be achieved in 2015, but many of the targets have still not been met. We believe that, as the food basket of the UK, Lincolnshire is the ideal county to adopt MDG1 and strive to alleviate hunger and poverty.

lincolnshirevhunger2015-9425Funds raised: The Lincolnshire v Hunger campaign highlights the continuing struggle of 1.2 billion people who are still living in extreme poverty, both at home and overseas, and raises financial provisions to improve their living conditions and future prospects.
