We are delighted to share our new video, created for Mitzvah Day 2022.

As winter draws in, many families find themselves in the eye of a storm. Energy prices, food prices and fuel crisis combine and trap families in impossible situations, having to make choices between heating and eating. At Rene Cassin, we believe that our Social, Economic and Cultural rights mean that everyone has a right to live with dignity. No-one should be making the decision between heating and eating – not this year, not ever.

This year, to mark Mitzvah Day, we asked some of our Right to Food partners what we can all do to support a Right to Food. We’d like to thank FEAST With Us, Joint Public Issues Team, Professor Geraldine Van Bueren KC and Mitzvah Day.

Our work to enshrine the Right to Food in UK law comes as part of an urgent response to food poverty in the UK. In a world where Social, Economic and Cultural rights are enjoyed fully, there will be no Foodbanks. In this vision, the Government is responsible for ensuring that everyone has access to nutritiously culturally appropriate food. Help us make this vision a reality – tell the Government to enshrine the Right to Food in UK law this Mitzvah Day.
