Join Oxfam Action Corps New York City between 12 and 8 pm on Wednesday, June 1 for the launch of Oxfam’s new Global Food Justice Campaign!
They will have a “Table for 9 Billion” at the southeast corner of Union Square Park to raise awareness of the global food crisis afflicting the world’s poor and what New Yorkers can do to help. The world’s population is expected to reach nine billion by 2050, but currently, more than 925 million people don’t get enough to eat. However, we envision a world in which everyone has access to enough food and know it is possible to achieve this goal through education and collective action.
At the “Table for Nine Billion,” you will be able to obtain informational materials on the new campaign, as well as send a message to your elected officials that you support President Obama’s 2012 International Affairs Budget.
