WhyHunger’s work is about people. It’s rooted in the deep conviction that the most innovative solutions to hunger and poverty are driven by grassroots leaders and communities. By supporting and uniting the work of everyday people who know the harsh realities of hunger, we can create effective solutions, build vibrant communities, and free people from the cycles of hunger and poverty.

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, our most vulnerable communities are experiencing unprecedented hardships with food shortages and financial distress.

It's essential to protect food access for all people, especially those who are most vulnerable. For 45 years, WhyHunger has worked with emergency food providers, small-scale farmers, and food chain workers across the country to end hunger and ensure access to healthy food. We're uniquely positioned to coordinate an immediate national response and distribute resources to the communities and organizations that need them most.

Join WhyHunger by investing in our Rapid Response Fund to provide emergency support and critical relief for emergency food pantries, farmers, restaurant and food chain workers. Your generous support will help scale up WhyHunger’s Find Food Database, Texting service and Hotline.
