WhyHunger supports some of the most innovative community-based organizations across the country, that are working every day, 365 days a year, implementing immediate solutions in times of crisis AND long-term, sustained solutions to the on-going crisis of hunger and poverty. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, WhyHunger’s National Hunger Hotline 1-866-3-HUNGRY is fielding calls from hundreds of families affected by the storm, connecting them with emergency food assistance, government programs, and support in their communities to ensure they get the resources they need for today and the support to get back on their feet for tomorrow. Many of WhyHunger’s long time partners in the Tri-State area are on the front lines, providing food, water and critical services to their neighbors respond and working in their communities to continue the work of long-term recovery.
Through Hungerthon, you can support WhyHunger’s on-going work with the grassroots organizations that are changing the face of hunger in the U.S – building their capacity, connecting them with resources and innovative programs, and bringing their voice to the national and global conversation to change our food system.
