MAZON provides funding, training and resources to nonprofit organizations in the United States and Israel who share our commitment to advocating to end hunger.
Our funding supports advocacy and public policy efforts to protect and strengthen the government food and nutrition programs that serve as a critical safety net, helping millions of struggling children, families and seniors put food on the table each day.
In the United States
Our grantee partners in the U.S. include a range of organization types, including food banks, legal-service organizations, statewide coalitions and advocacy groups, all of whom advocate for legislation including the Farm Bill, Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act and the Older Americans Act.
MAZON has been working in Israel for over 30 years, in pursuit of its vision of an Israel that actively works to address and prevent food insecurity among all its people through responsive, coherent policy and support of charitable efforts. We have recently stepped up our efforts to end hunger in the Jewish state, partnering with groups working in diverse sectors on issues affecting the Bedouin community, women’s rights, human rights, and groups engaged in public education and advocacy. Our goal is to help these partners build new bridges that allow us all to work together to create a more unified and effective anti-hunger advocacy force in the months and years to come.
Quick Reaction Fund
Now more than ever, MAZON recognizes the need for anti-hunger movement leaders to respond quickly to pressing issues that will disproportionally impact the lives of food insecure people. MAZON’s Quick Reaction Fund (QRF) addresses this need by providing assistance for special initiatives and actions around the country that may emerge at a moment’s notice and for which a targeted and strategic action will result in a meaningful response.
