Our People

Andrew Hurwitz

Executive Director

Will Work For Food offers a unique opportunity for members to impact two communities through a single project. Equipped with this double-edged sword, Andrew feels extremely passionate about this organization as he is given the ability to not only benefit his local communities in Baltimore and Ann Arbor, but also simultaneously help solve the issue of global acute malnourishment abroad. As the world grows more interconnected with each passing year, Andrew feels that this generation must assume responsibility in treating the problems abroad like problems of their own. Andrew loves that WWFF provides him with the ability to benefit his own neighborhood while giving underprivileged children abroad a second chance at life.
