South Florida Jewish Community Leader Joins National Board of MAZON
MAZON announced that south Florida Jewish leader and philanthropist Mark Kravitz, president of Jenco Properties, has joined the national anti-hunger organization’s Board of Directors.
“We are incredibly proud to welcome Mark to this vital national leadership position,” said Abby J. Leibman, MAZON’s President & CEO. “His commitment to ensuring a better future for those who are vulnerable, not only in south Florida, but in our nation, demonstrates an inspiring commitment to live out his Jewish values through causes that are central to his vision for a better world.”
Mr. Kravitz, of Miami, has extensive leadership experience with various national and local organizations including the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, the Center for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), KESHET, the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews, the Jewish Volunteer Center, the Miami Jewish Film Festival, and the South Florida Symphony.
“From our military families to our seniors, we owe it to our community as responsible citizens to make sure that everyone in our country has enough to eat — not just at this moment, but always,” said Mr. Kravitz. “Imagine if all of our families could have peace of mind that they knew where their next meal was coming from because we adopted a new approach to food security that wouldn’t allow people to get to desperate places they find themselves in today. These are the adaptive changes that MAZON is working on and fighting for, and that’s why I am so excited to join the Board.”
Mr. Kravitz joins MAZON’s Board of Directors as the organization is about to launch its groundbreaking new project, The Hunger Museum, which illuminates the history of hunger in the United States. MAZON’s all-virtual Hunger Museum will engage and inspire visitors to join in advocating for systemic change, ensuring inclusive and equitable access to nutritious food for all Americans.
