WHY has been helping people for over 3 decades. Their goal isn't to feed people, but to help people learn to feed themselves. Their grassroots efforts to educate the public about hunger, the causes, and the sustaining potential solutions are critical in today's world.

WHY is an excellent and incredibly important organization that works on a grassroots level to address the root problem with hunger and poverty. They are a highly organized, efficient group of folks that understand you must approach the issue of hunger and poverty from across several different disciplines and with a wide array of tools -- an essential understanding of these intertwined issue. Each member of the staff I met during an event was passionate and committed, and most importantly, focused. Needless to say, they are performing some essential work, and doing a fantastic job as they do it.

Ensure wider exposure is possible in the media. It's unfortunate that WhyHunger's efforts don't seem to be reported in many major publications.

WHY is doing the type of work that needs to be done in this country -- and often falls through the cracks. They deserve to be recognized for their important contributions to the lives of so many people.

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

the WHY media awards -- recognizing the kind of important journalism for hunger and poverty that is often not recognized by financial means and needs to be supported!

I was recently involved with WHY through the band that I work with and their involvement with the Hard Rock Cafe's IMAGINE THERE'S NO HUNGER program. We had an amazing opportunity to go and do two site visits at New York City urban farms last month. It was incredible to see what these communities were able to develop in the most unlikely of places such as an abandon lot or a space adjacent to a NYC subway stop. With the help of WHY these farms are providing so much to the community: wonderful fresh produce, work skills for teenagers, involvement of the whole community including preschoolers and seniors, and so much more. The team of people working at WHY are a great group of people and so dedicated and passionate about the work that they do. I really look forward to working with them again in the future and continuing to help support WHY and their amazing programs.

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

make a huge strides in bringing about the end to hunger and poverty throughout the world. They not only provide food to those in need but they also provide tools and resources so that they can one day provide for themselves.
