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 during Sukkot, we invite friends and family into our sukkah to enjoy a communal meal. Traditionally, we are taught to extend an invitation to the needy members of our community as well. Whether symbolically or more literally, Sukkot is the perfect time to share your hospitality and good fortune to help improve the lives of the most vulnerable among us, including the millions of Americans facing hunger. We hope you will utilize MAZON’s Sukkot materials and contact Paul Sherman, Outreach Manager, with any questions.
Your community can help end hunger.
Many of us participate in food drives during the Sukkot season to help to those facing hunger locally. Please consider taking this 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 Sukkot study sessions.

“When my food stamps run out, it’s kinda scary not knowing if I'm gonna have any money to eat tomorrow.”
