Forty-hour famine

Forty-hour famine

Children at Avalon Baptist Church Hall in Lower Hutt in 1986 survey the barley sugars on their plates – all that they are allowed to eat for 40 hours. The 40-hour famine is a popular fund-raising project run by World Vision in which children get people to sponsor them for taking part. They are not allowed to eat anything for 40 hours so that they understand what it is like not to have enough food to eat.
