With 38 million Americans, including 1 in 6 children, struggling with food insecurity now is the time to take action. WhyHunger’s annual Hungerthon began in 1975 and has become a powerful Thanksgiving tradition to raise funds and awareness about hunger and poverty. Donations to WhyHunger’s Hungerthon will support community-based solutions to hunger across the U.S. that nourish people in immediate need and address the underlying issues at the root of hunger. For more information and to support WhyHunger’s Hungerthon, visit Hungerthon.org. Follow the conversation via #Hungerthon.
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. We are working to end hunger and advance the human right to nutritious food in the U.S. and around the world.
