On 23 January 'Enough Food For Everyone…IF' launched — a new campaign from a coalition of 100 charities including UNICEF and Oxfam to help raise awareness of how governments can unite and tackle world hunger. More information: http://www.enoughfoodif.org
Did you know that UK households waste 25% of all the food they buy? And a third of the world's entire food supply could be saved by reducing waste — enough to feed 3 billion people! The Gleaning Network UK has already saved several tones of superb British produce, enough for thousands of meals in Kent, Sussex and Lincolnshire. It has new groups forming in Manchester and Bristol.

CLIMATE WEEK 2013
Climate Week is Britain's biggest climate change campaign and brings global warming and environmental issues to the forefront of the news agenda annually. With Climate Week 2013 fast approaching, we cast our minds back to last year's events and see how successful they were. To run or find an event for this year's Climate Week (4-10 March), visit http://www.climateweek.com
FEEDING THE 5,000
Mentioned briefly in an earlier video, we look at a campaign called Feeding the 5,000. It is an initiative all about physically showing how many people we could feed using food that would usually be considered waste. More information: http://www.feeding5k.org/
GLOBAL FOOD SECURITY
Sticking with the theme of food, do you ever think about how much – as a species – we collectively eat? Furthermore, do you ever think about if the Earth's supply can continue to match our demand? Here's a short film from The Vegan Society about exactly that. More information: http://www.vegansociety.com/
