“We were inspired by Paul Newman and what he did with Newman’s Own. We wanted
to help raise awareness about hunger in America. We didn’t have a celebrity to lead the
charge so we made up one – Hungrr, the oddly loveable hunger monster.
The rest is history, IF you’ll help us make it!
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.

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 team has been joining the funny Hungrr character
throughout NYC for years.
“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.”
– Owen Plotkin, founder Hungrr,LLC.
