Bishops from across our region will join thousands of people giving up food today to raise awareness of world hunger.
The Bishops of Oxford, Salisbury and Sherborne are taking part in the Big IF Fast to draw attention to the fact that one in eight people go hungry every day.
Rt Revd John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford, said: "I hope that my small act of going hungry for a single day will help bring the plight of the starving to the attention of our world's leaders."
The fast is being organised by the Enough Food for Everyone IF campaign and is made up of more than 200 charities and organisations.
