This year, the coronavirus pandemic has made MAZON’s work more urgent than ever. People are in dire straits, reaching out to food support systems that they never thought they would need. Our partners, such as food banks, meals on wheels, and school nutrition programs, have all needed to adapt to our new world, where health and safety are at the forefront for staff, volunteers and clients.
Although many of us have adjusted to the new normal, Canada’s food systems have not. Whatever challenges come next, we must learn from this hard lesson and be sure the system we build is stronger and more resilient than the one that came before.
YOU CAN HELP.
This Rosh Hashannah, if it is within your means to give, we urge you to give generously - you can feed someone today, and build a better food system for tomorrow.
ON A MISSION TO END HUNGER IN CANADA
We are a grassroots network that feeds both Jewish and non-Jewish Canadians in need. We support food projects across the country - including food banks, school nutrition programs, hot meals at shelters, community gardens and more. Four million Canadians go hungry each year. One in five are helped by MAZON Canada’s network.
