Founded in 1975 by the late Harry Chapin and radio DJ Bill Ayres, WhyHunger believes a world without hunger is possible. We provide critical resources to support grassroots movements and fuel community solutions rooted in social, environmental, racial and economic justice. A four-star rated charity by Charity Navigator, with highest ratings for excellence in fiscal management accountability and transparency, WhyHunger is working to end hunger and advance the human right to nutritious food in the U.S. and round the world.

“WhyHunger believes that nutritious food is a human right and hunger is a solvable problem. As the COVID-19 pandemic leaves millions more people struggling to access healthy food, it is more important than ever that we come together with like-minded organizations, companies and consumers to move the needle beyond charity to strike at the root causes of hunger. The time for business as usual is up. Let’s transform our food system through social, racial and economic justice to build a just, hunger free world.”

– Noreen Springstead, Executive Director
