Let all who are hungry come and eat...

Funding Criteria


MAZON Canada is the national Jewish response to hunger. MAZON raises funds primarily from within the Jewish community and allocates those funds on a non-denominational basis to Canadian organizations battling hunger on the front lines. MAZON grants are intended to be used toward the relief of hunger in Canada. 


MAZON Canada will only fund food-related costs for programs that support people in need.


Within that mandate, we prioritize:

  • Small, poorly capitalized, “storefront” operations which deal as directly as possible with the hungry;
  • Organizations which target specific groups in need (e.g. children, homeless, seniors, people with mental illness)
  • Organizations with a high volunteer component
  • Organizations which work to end food bank dependency

MAZON Canada does not fund: salary, rent, maintenance, administrative costs, or equipment.
