our commitment to whyhunger

Managing Partner Michael Wildes, who is also a Board of Director member of WhyHunger, wishes to congratulate the winner of a one-hour consultation with Michael and his father, Leon Wildes.  Also included in the auction package was an iconic photo of John Lennon after he was granted permission to stay in New York. 
WhyHunger is a non-profit organization working to end hunger and poverty by connecting people to nutritious, affordable food and by supporting grassroots solutions that inspire self-reliance and community empowerment.  
On both a domestic and international level, the number of people experiencing food insecurity, meaning that they go without food and/ or need to rely from time to time on emergency sources, or that face hunger on a daily basis as a result of living at or below the poverty line is increasing exponentially. Research shows that people who do not consume the minimum amount of calories needed for sound health and growth also experience higher levels of chronic illness, anxiety, and depression.
This past June, WhyHunger’s annual dinner honored, among other notables, Yoko Ono Lennon. The firm of Wildes & Weinberg, founded in 1960, by Senior Partner, Leon Wildes, successfully represented former Beatle John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono, in their widely publicized deportation proceedings, the circumstances of which have inspired several films, documentaries, and a multitude of written works.
Wildes & Weinberg donated a one-hour consultation with Michael and his father, Leon Wildes. This donation item is just another example of the firm’s commitment to community service and social action.
