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.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
