Sunday 16th Oct 2011 was World Food Day, Oxfam had a Australia wide fundraising event called Shout the Horn.
Dine out with your friends and family at a participating restaurant and raise money to support Oxfam's response to the Horn of Africa food crisis.
More than 13 million people in the Horn of Africa are currently facing desperate food shortages following the worst drought in 60 years. Oxfam is there — supporting more than 1 million people with life-saving water, basic sanitation and food, and aiming to reach another 2.5 million in coming months.
The Australian Government has pledged to match donations to our Horn of Africa Food Crisis Appeal, so every dollar you donated on World Food Day to Shout the Horn will be doubled!
