This year, we're doing things a bit differently. Instead of giving up food for 40 hours, we'll be packing our bags.
You'll commit to living out of your backpack for 40 hours to raise funds for refugee and displaced children. Pack the essentials - food, water, warm clothes; whatever you think you'll need to get through.
You are more than welcome to start the 40 Hour famine whenever you would like however, the official start date is 11th August 2017.
STARTS: 8pm Friday 11th August 2017
FINISHES: 12pm Sunday 13th August 2017
We recommend that you participate in the official 40 Hour Famine weekend – it’s so much fun to do it with thousands of others!
But if you can’t do it on the official weekend you can choose any other weekend in August.
