Mission

The World Hunger Education Service (WHES) was founded in 1976 to help people understand why people were hungry and poor in the United States and in the world and to contribute to action on these issues. Its principal activity is the publication of Hunger Notes in on-line (www.worldhunger.org). By providing key information on hunger and poverty in the world and in the United States, it has become the number one ranked website for world hunger on Google and other search engines. WHES is a volunteer organization, with monetary contributions going for publication and office expenses (and contributions to organizations that work with poor people through hunger quiz and free [to reader] donation pages on the Hunger Notes website).
