Mazon | A Jewish Response To Hunger

A Jewish response to hunger is ending it for good.
In a land of plenty, there should be plenty for everyone.
Regardless of circumstance, no one deserves to be hungry.
We’re fighting hunger. It doesn’t stand a chance.

There is no invisible line marking the boundaries of need. Hunger has not one face, but multiple. MAZON channels support from the Jewish community to end hunger in every community — a recognition that struggle is universal, and that human connection runs deep.

Our Mission

Inspired by Jewish values and ideals, MAZON is a national organization fighting to end hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds in the United States and Israel.

Ending hunger means working toward systemic change.

We advance policy solutions that confront hunger's root causes, particularly for populations and problems that have been previously overlooked or ignored. This includes hunger among military families, veterans, single mothers, Native Americans, and LGBTQ seniors.

This is Hunger

“I barely make ends meet. I don’t use the lights during the day, and I don’t buy as much food as I’d like.”

“Feeding my young grandson properly is the priority, so I have to find things that I know fill me up.”

“I’m doing all I can and serving my country, and I have to worry about how I’m going to buy food?”

“I had planned to work until I wasn’t able to anymore. I thought that after working hard all my life, I’d be living the good life now.”

“Eating better, has really changed my life. I used to be on about eight medications...now I'm only taking two pills.”
