Lincolnshire children are raising awareness of global hunger thanks to a new competition created by Lincoln based charity Shepherd Food Ministries. The campaign aims to inspire communities to work alongside governments and international institutions to achieve the objective of the UN’s Millennium Development Goal (MDG1) of reducing poverty and hunger by two thirds in 2015.
Shepherd Food Ministries was set up in April 2006 by my friend and former colleague Dr Ola Ogunyemi: “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. SFM partnered with the Lincoln Food Bank to launch the Lincolnshire v Hunger competition to help give our young people a voice and help them develop and consolidate the virtues of compassion and empathy.”
The school with the most votes will receive £1,000 worth of musical instruments sponsored by the Musicroom, at the Award Afternoon on Saturday 26 September, 2015 at The Showroom, Lincoln. To book your ticket, email firstname.lastname@example.org and you can vote here for any of the songs.
