WhyHunger supports some of the most innovative community-based organizations across the country, that are working every day, 365 days a year, implementing immediate solutions in times of crisis AND long-term, sustained solutions to the on-going crisis of hunger and poverty.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, WhyHunger’s National Hunger Hotline 1-866-3-HUNGRY has been fielding calls from hundreds of families affected by the storm, connecting them with emergency food assistance, government programs, and support in their communities to ensure they get the resources they need for today and the support to get back on their feet for tomorrow. If you are in need of emergency food, D-SNAP or assistance finding help in your community, please contact WhyHunger’s National Hunger Hotline at 866.3.HUNGRY or 877.8.HAMBRE or visit www.whyhunger.org/findfood
Many of WhyHunger’s long time partners in the Tri-State area are on the front lines, providing food, water and critical services to their neighbors and are working in their communities on long-term recovery. Through our Hungerthon and Imagine There’s No Hunger campaigns, we will continue to support our partners on the front lines in these communities. Read more about our partners at Long Island Cares, Added Value and more on our Connect blog.
WhyHunger wishes everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy a safe and speedy recovery. We send our thanks to all the first responders, disaster crews, volunteers, community based partners and other public servants who have worked tirelessly on recovery in the days and weeks after the storm, and who will be there working on long-term recovery in the months and years that follow. To help out in your community, please contact the the Red Cross at www.redcross.org.
