WHO WE HELP

MAZON Canada supports food projects across the country, from British Columbia to Nova Scotia to Nunavut,  impacting people of all ages, ethnicities, faiths and abilities.

These grants feed people through food banks, shelters, community kitchens, school or after-school meal programs, meals on wheels, community gardens, and more.

FIVE GRANTING STREAMS

Mazon supports 200+ agencies each year in feeding their communities. 

The vast majority of our funding goes to the purchase of food - as it always has, and always will. But purchasing food directly isn't
always the most impactful or efficient way to fight hunger. 

Some partners need to replace broken kitchen equipment; some need help growing their own food; and some have big, new ideas for how our support can help them provide the high quality food to more people than ever. Some partners even need help fighting for policy change that tackles hunger at the root!

That's why Mazon supports communities in 5 different ways:

“ My husband and I were not expecting to have to use the food bank. When we went there, we thought that we were just going to be handed a box of old food. What a surprise to find that they had fresh fruit and vegetables for my family!

 

The ladies informed me that an organization called MAZON provided them. Thank you very much. We are so happy to have come to this great country.“
