Folk musician Harry Chapin and his friend Bill Ayres founded WhyHunger to find long-term solutions to hunger and poverty and build a grassroots movement that could enact them. We invite you to invest in Harry’s vision—in WhyHunger’s vision—by joining this group of dedicated monthly donors who sustain our work to make healthy food accessible to all.

"Truly it seems that we are never so alive as when we concern ourselves with other people." – Harry Chapin
