Rapper/producer Wyclef Jean will be in good company on Monday (June 8) as World Hunger Year (WHY) honors his commitment to fighting poverty at this year’s 2009 WHY-Chapin awards dinner.

The award-winning hitmaker will receive the ASCAP-Harry Chapin Humanitarian award at the event, which will take place at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City.

Jamaican musician/actor/activist Harry Belafonte will be on hand to present Jean the award.

Known as a leading advocate for innovative, community-based solutions to hunger and poverty, WHY is dedicated towards combating these issues by promoting methods for creating self-reliance, economic justice, and equal access to nutritious and affordable food.

Monday’s presentation is the latest accomplishment for Jean, who established his Yéle Haiti foundation in 2005.
