MAZON awards partnership grants to carefully selected anti-hunger organizations throughout the country that help us to advance long-term solutions to hunger in their communities. We seek to create long-term relationships with our grantee partners, which empowers them to maintain the continuity of their anti-hunger work and helps us to identify emerging trends that inform our program work.
MAZON provides funding, training and resources to 179 nonprofit organizations fighting to end hunger in the U.S and in Israel.
Our partner grantees include food banks, legal-service organizations, advocacy groups and many others. Our funding supports advocacy and public policy efforts to strengthen government food and nutrition programs at the local, state and federal level. These programs provide a critical safety net to help millions of struggling children, families and seniors put food on the table. Our partner grantees focus on legislation including the Farm Bill, Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act and the Older Americans Act.
