"Every day we get calls from people who have never used a food bank before in their lives."
"Just yesterday I registered an elderly woman who immigrated to Canada from China...
It was very difficult for her to ask for help... Unfortunately, she is not alone...
We have experienced a 225% increase in the number of community members we serve from 2021 to 2022"

THE JEWISH RESPONSE
Over 5.8 million Canadians went hungry this year - and 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 to a network of over 250 partners in 92 towns and cities across Canada, all while educating and advocating toward an end to hunger in Canada.
