MAZON collaborates with diverse stakeholders to showcase what’s possible: a country built on compassion, mutual support, and meaningful opportunity. By reflecting on the world as it is, we create a vision of what it could be — one where those in need are supported, the powerful are held to account, and hunger is a distant memory.
Every year at Passover, we affirm our obligation to care for one another by proclaiming “Let all who are hungry come and eat.” Please join MAZON in making this call to action a reality by utilizing our Passover materials for your family or community celebrations and contact Paul Sherman, Outreach Manager, with any questions.
Thank you to our clergy partners for sharing their wise Passover reflections: Rabbi Joel Pitkowsky (Teaneck, NJ), Cantor Lisa Doob (Lexington, MA), Rabbi Howard Jaffe (Lexington, MA), Rabbi Jay Kornsgold (East Windsor, NJ), Rabbi Lydia Medwin (Atlanta, GA), Rabbi Peter Rigler (Broomall, PA), Rabbi Brigitte Rosenberg (St. Louis, MO), Rabbi Michael Rothbaum (Acton, MA), Rabbis Feivel and Sydni Rubenstein (Shreveport, LA), Rabbi Victor Urecki (Charleston, WV), and Rabbi Elyse Wechterman (Wyncote, PA).
Your community can help end hunger.
Please consider taking your observance of Passover one step further by fundraising for MAZON's work to change the systems and policies that allow hunger to persist.
Sharing stories of people struggling with food insecurity is a powerful way to help your community better understand the realities of who is hungry in America today and why. MAZON’s This Is Hunger program includes stories that are ideal for sharing in sermons or holiday study sessions.

"I make sure that my son eats and then I worry about myself. That’s just what a parent does. I take him to a lunch program to make sure he’s getting food."
