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.
MAZON’s state and local policy campaigns extend the importance of systemic change to our partners in the Jewish community and the anti-hunger field. We empower and organize these partners to effectively advance the interests and dignity of those who struggle to put food on the table.
