In a time when truth is under assault and moral clarity is in short supply, MAZON is a voice for both — offering an honest perspective on the reality of hunger and forging solutions that are grounded in Jewish values. Our expertise positions us well to understand that clearing a path forward requires the kind of muscle only robust policy intervention can provide.
The evidence is clear. We can end hunger, but we have to think big and focus on bold policies. MAZON puts policymakers at the center of the solution, providing comprehensive guidance on smart, scalable legislation that helps people live better and more productively.
Join us in supporting the following federal policies:
Urge Congress to Reintroduce the Tribal Nutrition Improvement Act
Join us in urging Congress to reintroduce the Tribal Nutrition Improvement Act, which would enable Tribes to administer child nutrition programs in Indian Country and ensure culturally appropriate food. Take action now.
Take Action to Support Military Families

Urge Congress to Advance Solutions for Single Mothers Facing Hunger

Tell Congress: Pass the Puerto Rico Nutrition Assistance Fairness Act
Though a huge portion of Puerto Rico’s population lives in poverty, a federal block grant prevents these U.S. citizens from receiving the same nutrition benefits as those living in states on the mainland. It is well past time to fix this egregious problem — residents of Puerto Rico are entitled to access the same nutrition assistance as all other Americans. Take action now.
