Great American Deli Schlep Supporting MAZON

This summer, longtime MAZON supporter Steve Goode is setting out on a 16,000-mile, 75-day motorcycle adventure to visit one Jewish deli in nearly every state. The Great American Deli Schlep offers an exciting opportunity for the Jewish and broader communities nationwide to learn more about MAZON, the issue of hunger in America, and to bring together our supporters to enjoy a delicious meal from a deli in their state. Please contact Brit Finney, MAZON’s Development Associate, for more information.

Your gift to the Great American Deli Schlep will support MAZON's pursuit of a future where everyone has a seat at the table and enough food to eat.
