MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is a national nonprofit organization working to end hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds in the United States and Israel. MAZON, which means “food” or “sustenance” in Hebrew, was the first national organization to rally the American Jewish community around the issue of hunger and remains the only national Jewish organization dedicated exclusively to that same cause. MAZON works to ensure that hungry people have access to the resources they need to survive while simultaneously striving to develop and advance long-term solutions that will end hunger once and for all. The three interrelated strategies we employ – advocacy & education, partnership grants and strategic initiatives – form the foundation for our holistic approach and symbolize our desire to embody the Jewish ideals: tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (healing the world).
