"I support WhyHunger because of the grassroots approach in not only providing nourishment, but building up communities to win the fight against hunger and poverty."
- Rennie Pincus
"WhyHunger is working to eradicate hunger at a systemic level and understand that food is a human right. I believe in their work that addresses the root causes of hunger."
- Molly Tuttle
"EVERYONE should have access to healthy food. WhyHunger is helping make that happen. Over the last couple years I’ve worked closely with a few amazing folks on their staff and I trust them. And to boot, the organization was founded by one of my absolute hero’s, the late Harry Chapin. These are just a few reasons why I’m so stoked to be a part of what WhyHunger is doing."
- Sean McConnell
"Working with WhyHunger has given us the opportunity to bring people together through the power of music and help make a change. We all learn from each other and WhyHunger gives us an outlook and an understanding of the severity of the hunger problem. As we all join together and face this issuewhich most people take for granted, we can make a difference!"
 - Wigjam
