Ray Offenheiser and Kristin Davis: “Oxfam: World Hunger Event”, Talks at Google

Published on Dec 18, 2012

“Oxfam: Ending poverty and hunger starts with you,” Talks at Google with Kristin Davis and Ray Offenheiser

There is enough food on the planet to feed us all, but one in eight of us will go to bed hungry tonight because our food system is broken

International relief and development organization Oxfam has launched a campaign called GROW to build a better food system: one that sustainably feeds a growing population (estimated to reach nine billion by 2050) and empowers poor people to earn a living, feed their families, and thrive. And each one of us can make a difference, as voters, consumers and eaters!

Raymond C. Offenheiser (President of Oxfam America) and Kristin Davis (Sex and the City and Oxfam Global Ambassador) highlight the crucial role of women in the fight against hunger and the importance of investing in women farmers.
Watch and discover new ways of thinking about our food system, how it’s intertwined with other global crises, and what we all can do to help ensure everyone on the planet has enough to eat, always.
