AS JEWS, WE KNOW EVEN A ONE-DAY FAST IS NO SMALL THING.
And yet, across Canada, more than
5.8 MILLION CANADIANS will go hungry next year.
With FOOD COSTS UP 11% year over year,
cost of living soaring, and new refugees arriving every week,
how many fast-days will food insecure Canadians endure in 5783?
AS YOU PREPARE FOR YOUR CHOSEN FAST, DO ONE LAST MITZVAH:
HELP THEM END THEIRS.
HELP BREAK THEIR FAST
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, 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."
