"Food poverty among New York City kids is growing at an alarming rate," comments Hungrr’s Founder Owen Plotkin. "More than one in four New York City children live below the poverty level, more than one in five relies on soup kitchens or food pantries." Hungrr,LLC., founded by Owen Plotkin in 2006, works to raise awareness to the facts surrounding hunger in America and meaningfully contribute to organizations and individuals fighting hunger in their communities.

Hungrr is a blog and character and a company developing products that will - in a whimsical, not a guilt provoking way - remind people to think about the issues around hunger in America, encouraging people to "do a little good and feel good."

*According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Report, 35 million Americans suffer directly from hunger and food insecurity, including nearly 14 million children.

*All ticket sales go directly to The Foodbank For New York City. Tickets are 10 dollars. Further info re: HUNGRR, LLC. visit the Hungrr website

Mission: Raise awareness to the facts surrounding hunger in America and meaningfully contribute to organizations and individuals fighting hunger in their communities. We are bringing attention to the problem of hunger in America in a disarming and lighthearted way. Hungrr is a character, a logo, a blog and a work in progress. Hungrr is a line of products sold to raise awareness; funds raised will be used to further our mission. Any profits after taxes will be donated to organizations and individuals fighting hunger in their communities.

Hungrr, LLC., is NOT a non- profit organization. It is however a company that works to make people aware of the facts about hunger in America. Currently, we have no paid employees and are all volunteers. We also sell buttons and in the future, t-shirts, cookies, candy and toys. We hope that our products are fun to own, or eat, or play with, and that they will in a whimsical way, remind people to think about the issues around hunger in America - and encourage people to do a little good and feel good.

The orange jumpsuit clad End Team has been battling Hungrr throughout NYC this year. “We hope by bringing the issue to people ‘in person’ and in a humorous way, we can sneak into their mind gardens and plant happy helping thought seeds.� According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Report, 35 million Americans suffer directly from hunger and food insecurity, including nearly 14 million children. Worldwide more than 850 million people are chronically hungry.

Do a little good. And feel good. VOLUNTEER your time or DONATE food or money to your local Food Bank.
