Inspired by Jewish values and ideals, MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is a national advocacy organization working to end hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds in the United States and Israel.
MAZON, which means “food” or “sustenance” in Hebrew, was the first national organization to rally the American Jewish community around the issue of hunger and remains the only national Jewish organization dedicated exclusively to that same cause.
MAZON has established itself as a leading voice in Washington D.C. on anti-hunger issues, especially those that involve populations or problems that have been previously overlooked or ignored. MAZON works independently and in coalition with partners to engage policy makers to protect and strengthen vital government nutrition programs that help people put food on the table each day. It educates communities across the country about the realities of hunger and how they can get involved to help end it. It also provides funding, training, and resources to nonprofit organizations to support their advocacy efforts across the United States and Israel, which includes a range of organization types, such as food banks, legal-service organizations, statewide coalitions and advocacy groups.
MAZON is an equal opportunity employer. To ensure we meet our mission, and actualize the Jewish values and ideals on which our mission is based, MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger strives to hire, train and retain the most talented staff possible. A vital part of this commitment includes welcoming, respecting and encouraging diversity among our staff, including fostering an environment in which all staff have the greatest opportunities to thrive.
