MOTHER’S MANIFESTO FOR CHANGE
A CALL TO ACTION ON FOOD INSECURITY.
We are standing in solidarity with all the mothers and their children who are being failed by the current system. We know that we can make a difference, and with unwavering determination we can create a world in which no child goes hungry. We are calling on MPs to pledge their support for this Manifesto, and to take action on hunger and the right to food in the UK and globally.
Following last years hunger strike, we are taking to the streets again, starting this Mothering Sunday.
On Mothering Sunday 2023, our Mother's took to the streets on a 6 day hunger strike. They stood in unity and solidarity with all those struggling to feed themselves and their children.
During those 6 days 47,127 children died unnecessarily as a result of this crisis. We will not stop until there is immediate action to prevent the unnecessary crisis of food insecurity.
Joining Mother's Manifesto means joining a group of compassionate, like-minded people who want to see an end to suffering. We are a group of mother's who each have expertise and life experience in motherhood, food insecurity and health. We have people who run food banks, work as activists, are full time mothers, Doctors and NGO organisers, as well as support members who help with our messaging and logistics.
Please sign our contact sheet to find out more and connect with our group directly so we can grow our network.

“No child should be hungry, no child need be hungry if we only assume our urgent responsibility on inequality. Climate change is accelerating this crisis and we need to address it now. These brave women striking in solidarity with mothers should be listened to in the U.K. and around the world.”
Former executive secretary of the UNFCCC and co-host of the climate podcast Outrage + Optimism.
“Because I know women really struggling to raise their families because they are getting a raw ﬁnancial deal from this government. These women cannot take any more. This is why I’m supporting and I urge you to support this too.”

“It’s got to be the politicians who get together and start putting the future of humanity and indeed the future of all species on this precious planet as their number 1 priority. Rather than bank rolling fossil fuel companies who are destroying our future.”
Green Party MP for Brighton, Pavilion
Throughout our hunger strikes and time spent working together at food banks and with local community centres, we have been making a huge collection of hand made hearts. These hand stitched hearts are easy to make and allow us to each take a moment to think of a child close to our hearts. We want to show the compassion and connection that drives us to fight for those who are needlessly suffering. We all just want to know that our children and loved ones are safe and happy; that is our human right.
