Harnessing Artistry to Alleviate Hardship

New Orleans Artists Against Hunger & Homelessness

In 1985, acclaimed local musicians Allen Toussaint and Aaron Neville founded New Orleans Artists Against Hunger and Homelessness (NOAHH). The organization's original vision was to organize a concert with New Orleans artists to benefit hungry and homeless residents. The Greater New Orleans region has historically struggled with high levels of food insecurity, poverty, and homelessness. Since its founding, NOAHH has worked to address these complex challenges by harnessing the power of music. World-renowned artists such as Huey Lewis, Joni Mitchell, and Quincy Jones have volunteered their time and talent to participate in NOAHH's critical programming. In addition to benefit concerts, galas, and celebrity mixers, NOAHH has partnered with and distributed grants to more than 50 organizations that provide food and shelter year-round for those in need.
