WhyHunger’s work has taken on a new urgency during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has drastically increased rates of hunger and poverty around the world. For Max Cameron, the charitable component of the project was a natural fit alongside Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation, which most recently raised more than $11 million for local homeless organizations via two August 2018 shows in the band’s Seattle hometown.
