CAFOD at St Therese of Lisieux




Our Parish works with CAFOD in the Diocese of Middlesbrough. Local people standing in solidarity with our brothers and sisters overseas to end poverty and injustice.


 Throughout the year CAFOD runs a variety of appeals highlighting the work they are doing around the world.

Fix The Food System

It’s clear that our current global food system is in crisis, and at the heart of this crisis is a struggle over control of the world’s seeds.

CAFOD’s food campaign is urging the UK government to protect the right of farmers around the world to use their seeds.

Seeds are life. They are the very foundation for farmers to produce the food that feeds us all. 

For generations, small-scale farmers have freely swapped and shared a wide variety of seeds to produce food and maintain biodiversity. More recently, farmers have also developed seeds that ensure crops are resilient to climate change. However, their right to choose what seeds they use is increasingly under threat as new laws are introduced across the world that limit what small farmers can do with their seeds.
