The Just Food Festival, on this Saturday from 6.30pm, will support Oxfam's Grow campaign which aims to bring equality in global food distribution and availability.

Festival organisers The Justice Project Macarthur will also promote the six simple steps everyone can take to make a difference.

The Justice Project volunteer Kimberley Reh said the festival would feature local food and fresh produce.

"There will be hot food available on the night and fresh produce for sale," she said.

"We're hoping for a really family-friendly evening that's relaxing and also challenging."

Mrs Reh said there would also be entertainment from local musicians and kids' activities including face painting as well as cooking and gardening demonstrations.

The Justice Project Macarthur is an action group that raises awareness of global injustices including slavery, fair trade and food security.
