Pope to meet with most powerful European leaders on March 24

Hunger is a reality. It's estimated that more than 800 million people suffer from it worldwide. Campaigns have been launched in the past, but now, there's an initiative with a new supporter on board. 

POPE FRANCIS
"There is enough food available in the world, to feed everyone.” 

Through this video message, Pope Francis gave his blessing to a campaign titled "One Human Family, Food for All.” It's sponsored by the Catholic Church, through its main charity 'Caritas.' At the very core of its message, is the right to food

MICHEL ROY 
Secretary General, Caritas Internationalis 
"It's not only feeding an empty stomach, it's helping everyone to grow according to what God is expecting of us.” 

By combining efforts with about 164 member organizations, the campaign will deal with access to food and the effects climate change has on crop production.  But this campaign also brings it down to a personal level. 

"Every Wednesday evening we're here. We'll even be out here this Christmas.” 

As a volunteer with 'Progetto Arca' Cinzia welcomes the Pope's words.  For years now, the group has come, independently, to give out food to the needy. She says the campaign combines an international cause with a universal call to action

"It's really quite simple. When you help others, you also help yourself.” 

This campaign also calls all people to look at their own dinner table, specifically, what they can do to stop wasting food. Caritas says it's not just about physical hunger, but spiritual hunger as well. It's an example set forth by Jesus. 

MICHEL ROY 
Secretary General, Caritas Internationalis
"He gave himself as food, as our spiritual food, so there is something very strong for us Catholics and as Christians when we deal with the world of food.” 

Caritas has a presence in 200 countries. To kick off the campaign, an international 'wave of prayer' was held. In Rome, it took place in the Church of San Franceso a Ripa, which is the parish St. Francis of Assisi stayed, when living in Rome.
