“COVID-19 has greatly exacerbated food insecurity rates, and the social injustices that have long existed at the root of hunger, from racism to the lack of a living wage. Hunger is a solvable problem, and we urge you to participate in this year’s campaign to help tackle the urgent human need for access to nutritious food,” said Noreen Springstead, executive director at WhyHunger, in a press statement. “From donating to participating in our virtual Race to Give Thanks to learning and spreading the facts about hunger in America, there are many ways individuals can get involved and give back. We are honored and humbled to kick off Hungerthon 2020, working with dedicated partner organizations and celebrities to become one step closer to ending hunger and ensuring everyone’s right to food.”
