Oxfam's campaign for a future where everyone on the planet has enough to eat, always.
Hot and hungry
Right now farmers around the world are going hungry. Droughts, floods and other natural disasters caused by climate change are stopping them from growing enough food to feed their families and make a living.
The makers of Pringles and Green Giant don’t seem to care. They don’t fully disclose most of their emissions, let alone set targets to reduce them. And they do business with companies that worsen climate change by burning down forests and over-using polluting fertilisers.
It doesn't have to be this way. If thousands of us demand that Kellogg and General Mills companies reduce their harmful emissions and call for other companies and governments to do the same, we could take the climate change out of our food.
When enough of us speak out, companies listen. Thanks to your actions Coca-Cola and PepsiCo have agreed to a zero tolerance policy on land grabs – so that the sugar in your favourite food and drinks is not sourced by kicking farmers and their families off their land. Find out more

PepsiCo, the world’s second largest food and beverage company, today committed to take steps to stop land grabs from happening in its supply chain after more than 272,000 people, including thousands of Kiwis, signed petitions and took action as part of Oxfam’s campaign to urge food and beverage companies to respect community land rights.
Campaign actions by hundreds of thousands of people in the past 12 months, including thousands of Kiwis, have swayed nine of the world’s ten biggest food and beverage companies to improve their social and environmental policies, says worldwide development organisation Oxfam.
