HISTORY OF MAZON
MAZON Canada was originally founded by Leonard Fein on the 3% principle. This means we ask our supporters to donate 3% of the food costs of any simcha or milestone event so we can allocate those funds to the hungry to “symbolically invite a hungry stranger to their table”. The MAZON mission has expanded over the past 30 years since its creation to fundraising events, holiday appeals, occasion cards and collaborations with the community. Since the beginning of the organization, over $8 million has been allocated to front-line hunger relief projects across Canada.
