As the northeast continues its recovery from Hurricane Sandy, I’ve been struck by the collective spirit of resilience all around us—a spirit that can also be found at Action Against Hunger.

As many of you already know, cancelling our Annual Gala was a very difficult decision, but we’ve developed a terrific Plan B for you to experience—the silver lining in our storm cloud: Action Against Hunger’s first-ever Virtual Gala launches today, Monday 11/12.

We invite you to “attend” our virtual gala by exploring the following items at your leisure.

Overview of Our Work

Hurricane Sandy’s upending of our Gala will have serious consequences for the vulnerable children and families who would normally benefit from the $400,000 we hoped to have raised at the event.

Let’s not let Sandy thwart our efforts to reach the seven million people who benefit from Action Against Hunger's programs each year.

Thanks so much for your support, and enjoy the Virtual Gala!
