The European Food Banks Federation, together with other European organizations, co-signed EAPN letter to the newly elected MEPs. In this letter, we are asking them to make sure that the eradication of poverty stays at the top of the political agenda.
Three specific demands were made to the new members of the European Parliament:
- Support the continuation of the Intergroup on Poverty and Human Rights and mobilise their political group in favour of this.
- Participate in the ‘Roundtable on the Fight Against Poverty’ on 17 October, International Day Against Poverty.
- Recognise the important role that people experiencing poverty play in the fight against poverty and commit to attend the 18th European Meeting of People Experiencing Poverty.
To know more about our requests, read the letter.
