TESTIMONIALS

FROM MAZON'S

PARTNERS

With the ongoing support of our dedicated donors, MAZON Canada has funded hundreds of food projects, both Jewish and non-Jewish, all over the country. The stories of the people accessing these programs continues to motivate the work we do and inspires us to work harder to end 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."

Volunteer from the Nelson Community Food Centre - MAZON grantee

"Although our school is small, more than 50% come to school hungry. This grant has helped our students have access to food for learning, helps them concentrate in class and feel at ease knowing they can come to the office for food without feeling embarrassed. Food insecurities can be the biggest factor to behavioural issues, mental health problems and depression. The students know we always have food for them and that it is accessible to them."

"Thank you so much for the time you give us to rest our emotions, hearts and thoughts as we are healing. My daughter will grow stronger seeing that there is good in this world and that nothing needs to be returned for this great gift."

"We had a salad bar at one school that included a lot of hands on learning. We had 3 students skinning a local deer with a high school mentor, 5 students working on school garden with 4 high school mentors, and we were able to serve local kale, local potatoes and venison in one of the hot lunches in 2019."

"The kids loved the oranges, peaches and much more that was given to us. Watching the kids faces light up when they saw the food and how quiet they were while eating because they were enjoying it so much! Thank you so much for giving our kids the option to have healthy snacks and lunches all summer!!"
