Reunited for Pesach this year, the joy and freedom we experience is sweet and desperately deserved.
But on Passover sweetness always has a bitter companion: because even as we gather around the Seder table, so many of our fellow Canadians are going without.
And so, as we enjoy our "back to normal", let us remember what "normal" means for millions of our neighbours - and "invite the hungry" to our tables this year with a gift to Mazon Canada.
THE JEWISH RESPONSE
Over four million Canadians go hungry each year - but our food aid system struggles to support them.
MAZON Canada is a grassroots community foundation that feeds Canadians of all ages, ethnicities, faiths and abilities on behalf of the Jewish community by supporting front-line food projects across the country. We provide grants for food and equipment, and educate and advocate toward an end to hunger in Canada.

"Thanks to support for the nutrition program at Lawrence Heights Middle School, students have been able to enjoy a healthy meal on a daily basis while at the same time learning the skills of preparing healthy food and why it’s so essential to their health and wellness. Thank you for your continued support of our students and communities."
