GROW Campaign

Here are a few interesting facts and figures from Oxfam Grow Report,

  • 500 million small farms in developing countries help feed almost 2 bn people #GROW
  • Consumers in rich countries may waste as much as a 1/4 of the food they buy.
  • International food prices of some basic foods - such as rice, wheat and maize - are set to more than double by 2030.
  • Until the mid-90s, global hunger was in decline. Had progress been maintained, 413 million fewer people would be hungry today #GROW
You can find more of these facts and  figures to share on your facebook and twitter from here.

Don't forget to visit our own Grow Campaign and World Food Day at Cityfarm, Claisebrook on the 20th of October.
