BENEFITING: MAZON - A JEWISH RESPONSE TO HUNGER
The first cause I want to fundraise for is Mazon.
MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing and alleviating hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds. Since its founding in 1985, MAZON, which means “food” or “sustenance” in Hebrew, has been the only national Jewish organization dedicated exclusively to fighting hunger. MAZON practices and promotes a multi-faceted approach to hunger relief, recognizing the importance of responding to hungry peoples’ immediate need for nutrition and sustenance while also working to advance long-term solutions. This approach symbolizes our desire to embody twin Jewish ideals: tzedakah and tikkun olam.
