Bravo to the American Academy of Pediatrics for their support of the federal nutrition programs that are vital to so many. Screening at appointments will help struggling families get the support they need.

There are only a few days left to get your Chicken-Finger-Latke! Thanks for including us in the fun, Sticky's Finger Joint! (via +Food Network)

Perhaps with that partly in mind, the creative forces behind Sticky’s Finger Joint, New York City’s gourmet chicken-strip mecca, have come up with the perfect way to celebrate the Jewish festival of lights: a hybrid of a latke and a chicken finger that they’re calling simply The Latka.

It's true, Joshua Malina will laugh at your jokes if you support MAZON! 

"I love MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger. It is a beautiful organization that takes its inspiration from the Jewish principles of ‘tzedakah’ and ‘tikkun olam’—that is to say, justice—and the effort to help repair the world."

Tagline
MAZON is a national nonprofit working to end hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds in the US and Israel.
Introduction
Our Mission: 

  • To provide for people who are hungry while at the same time 
    advocating for other ways to end hunger and its causes;
  • To educate and raise the consciousness of the Jewish community 
    regarding its obligation to alleviate hunger and its causes; and
  • To make donating a portion of the cost of life cycle events 
    (historically at least 3%) to MAZON a permanent tradition in Jewish life.
