World Hunger Year-founded in 1975 by late singer/songwriter Harry Chapin and its present director, Bill Ayres – helps inform the American people about the extent and causes of domestic and international hunger, and seeks to develop the kinds of programs and policies necessary to end hunger.

WHY ran a 24-hour radiothon from the UN visitors’ area last November. They raised $260,000 for UNICEF’s campaign to help the children of Central America and for WHY’s campaign to end hunger and homelessness in America.

Peter Mann’s work entails writing for and editing Food Monitor and Hungerline Reports, running the World Hunger Media Awards, and working with the media, the UN and hunger and development organizations in the US and abroad.
