Rating: 5 stars  

I have been helped by this group in countless ways, not only with learning how to work again but in receiving boxes of food to help me survive getting back on my feet after losing my job several years ago. We wouldn't have survived with out their help.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?


Did the organization use your time wisely?

Quite well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

This group is a complete scam.

Raises money for the telemarketer "Dr. Norman Whan", who has been involved with telemarketing/fundraising for a variety of self-described ministries or churches in Orange County. They are now expanding, and targeting wealthy neighborhoods in San Diego County to increase their collections. Their non-profit filings on their website, and their website in general, are inadequate and out of date.

They currently pretend to "paint curbs" , and then return to ask money for "volunteer" work performed. They do not have permission to do so, in general are not desired in the neighborhoods, and may be a front for further criminal activities in the targeted neighborhoods.

You have been warned.

The charity states that it feeds one million people annually. If you break that down my dividing 12 into 1,000,000 you have 83,333 people per month. There are 22 working days per month that a charity would have people working to pass out food. Now divide 22 into 83,333 and you have 3,787 people per day that are being given food. When Cunning Hunger has one food bank location in the City of Brea and only operates in Southern California. The charity makes claims that are not supported by the facts of what it actually does.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ask that the people in charge try telling the truth.
