October grassroots conference call

A recording of the October grassroots conference call is now online. This month, we were joined by Megan Pennell, Country Support Adviser for the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) movement, based at Save the Children in London. Megan works with over 40 countries to develop strong national plans to tackle malnutrition and leads SUN’s youth engagement work.

Megan explained why it is important to not just have enough food, but also to have the right food to be able to thrive and fulfil your potential. There are many different aspects to malnutrition, from emergency food response to under-nutrition, as well as over-nutrition and obesity. Tackling malnutrition is central to achieving the Global Goals and ending poverty. 

Take a listen now and check out how you can get involved with this important campaign by meeting with your MP this month to explain why nutrition is so important.
