WhyHunger asks the important question, why is there hunger and poverty in a wealthy nation? And then they inspire others to ask the same question and step forward with long term, sustainable solutions. Through their vast network and resources, WhyHunger helps small non-profits grow and maintain their community gardens.

I've had the pleasure of working with the team at WhyHunger for the past few years, and have found their compassion for the community and commitment to the cause to be both inspiring and impactful. Bill, Noreen, and the team have a clear vision for the organization and exhibit the on-going dedication needed to pursue and execute that vision. Although my role has been small -- I've held up signs outside of TV studios during Hungerthon, and helped their communications team optimize their online efforts -- it has been truly rewarding. Every small gesture, donation, or effort of support is a treated as a step forward in the war against hunger and poverty in our world. Thank you WhyHunger for providing a platform to serve.

WhyHunger is a great organization that fights hunger on a immediate and long-term basis. The National Hunger Hotline provides hungry people with direct sources of food everyday. WhyHunger's work with grassroot organizations ensures that people have healthy and nutritious food sources now and in the future. It is a nonprofit that strives to make a difference in the lives of millions of people worldwide when many of them have gone unnoticed by mainstream media and general public. WhyHunger shines a bright light on one of the most common problems that people worldwide face and for that, they are a leader in the fight against hunger.

WhyHunger has flourished by sticking to their late founders message - "When in doubt, DO SOMETHING." WhyHunger not only spreads awareness of hunger in America, it enlightens individuals and organizations to do their part to alleviate hunger through healthy, eco-friendly, and economically sound practices. I had the pleasure of interning at WhyHunger in 2011 and have never been surrounded by more compassionate and forward-thinking individuals. They address every aspect of combating hunger and make connections that truly change lives. I grew so much in the short time I spent with WhyHunger and firmly believe that WhyHunger empowers individuals to get their hands dirty and 'Do Something.'

WHY is an organization of dedicated staff and volunteers working hard to find solutions for hunger and poverty in the world today. As a long time volunteer, I have met and spoken to msny of the recipients of the WHY's help and support and see the difference WHY has made in their lives. It is a really worthwhile organization.

I have been involved with WHY for 15 years as a volunteer and volunteer supervisor. It would be difficult to find an organization that has such a dedicated staff to do somuch with so little. Support is needed to build assistance programs and public awareness.

My direct involvement with World Hunger Year began about 16 years ago, when I began volunteering with the annual Hungerthon. I was impressed with the organization's commitment to investing in organizations that addressed the immediate needs of hunger and who also had programs, like work programs, to help people get out of the trappings of poverty....The volunteers and staff of World Hunger Year have an amazingly energetic enthusiasm for their work. I am proud and happy to be a small part of that energy.

I have been involved with Would Hunger Year since about 1992. I have watched it grow and get better and more important every year. I was working when I first started, but have retired since. Once I heard that so many were without, mostly through what Harry Chapin talked about, it got me do do what I can. I work in a soup kitchen, feed people living at the train station and for a local food pantry. WHY had shown me that it was needed. It all goes back to World Hunger Year.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my life, in what I do with my free time and how WHY has helped so many.

Ways to make it better...

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

work a little more on Long Island where I am.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with great people doing a great job that is so important.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the best. Every year I see a lot of the same people and met new ones who I now get to work and talk with. When I first started I was the one that was worked with and talked to.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

our world " a better place to be". It could help so many, especially during this hard economic time.

Ways to make it better...

I didn't have to take the train to get there, and they had that $10 millian bucks. That is really it. I have no problems.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

helping people to see how important they and their work is and getting money in this time of economic craziness.

One thing I'd also say is that...

they are so important and do so much. If I had it and extra they would get the 10 millian bucks.

Supervisors Board Member since 1997 and a member of Artists Against Hunger and Poverty. I am, and always have been, very proud of my association with WHY as I am always impressed with their forward thinking in the battle against hunger and poverty and I have been impressed, and learned from, the financial prudence they exhibit in all areas of operation.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I was introduced to WHY this year and am still learning just how impactful this organization is making in the fight against hunger and poverty. The grassroots nature of WHY's focus is key in eradiciting world hunger. The Artists Against Hunger & Poverty arm of WHY is where I have been most involved and seeing musicians from all over the musical spectrum lend their voices and time to the cause has been awe inspiring. The “Imagine There’s No Hunger” and Hungerthon are great examples of how WHY and AAH&P are making a difference.
