The Hunger Games, released earlier this year, is a haunting, fictional portrayal of poverty and hunger. But what about the 1 billion all over the world for whom food insecurity is a daily reality?
Here you can learn more about Tearfund’s work on hunger and food security, read reflections from some of our staff on The Hunger Games series, and campaign for our governments and world leaders to take action for the one in seven who go to bed hungry every night.

A prayer for the hungry
Lord God, we pray for everyone who is hungry today – whether they live thousands of miles away or in our local communities.
We pray urgently for food prices around the world to stabilise and fall, so that more countries do not fall into extreme hunger.
God we ask for wisdom for leaders and experts working to tackle hunger, and that they would be willing and able to make progress in identifying ways to combat food security and help communities adapt to changing weather patterns.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
