Founded in 1985, MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is a national nonprofit organization working to end hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds in the United States and Israel.
MAZON believes that we can end hunger in America and Israel by acting to ensure that hungry people have access to the nutritious food they need today and working to develop and advance long-term solutions so that no one goes hungry tomorrow. The three interrelated strategies we employ – advocacy & education, partnership grants and strategic initiatives – form the foundation for our holistic approach and symbolize our desire to embody the Jewish ideals: tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (healing the world).
