"We are very encouraged by the findings in the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) report about hunger in the military...and support the report's recommendation that the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) must collect more data in order to to fully understand the shameful incidence of hunger within the military. In fact, we think such action is essential."

"Military families shouldn't struggle with hunger. But they do - and that needs to stop." Our Op-Ed in The Virginian-Pilot: owl.li/9Cjx3028wxe #militaryhunger #thisishunger

Last week we brought together 24 organizations that serve military families to the MAZON Military Hunger Summit to explore the barriers that prevent veterans and currently serving military families from accessing vital food assistance programs. It was a privilege for MAZON to lead these remarkable advocates in powerful discussions about potential ways to surmount those barriers.

It was an amazing experience and one that will inform our vital advocacy efforts on behalf of those who serve or have served our nation so bravely.

NEW! "As an African-American woman representing a Jewish organization working in Indian Country, I call up our common history of genocide, persecution and discrimination as a starting place for shared analysis and perspective. But I do so knowing that non-Natives cannot direct the struggle for Native food security, no matter how well-meaning we are." http://owl.li/PeLB302buiN
I am reminded that being an effective ally for Native communities means looking for effective ways to support and stand with Native communities.

Secretary Hillary Clinton just put a spotlight on an issue too often hidden in the shadows: hunger among military families.

We’re hopeful that this issue won’t be ignored any longer. Learn more about our military hunger work: http://mazon.org/our-respon…/our-initiatives/help-our-heroes

NEW! MAZON goes to Camp! http://owl.li/Nt0h3013CJ1
I grew up counting down the days until camp started. Even in the middle of winter, I knew exactly how many days were left until I boarded the bus that would drive up the long tree-lined road and through the front gates of camp.

This article offers an extensive look at an issue that doesn't often get attention. And if you make it to the end? It's sure to provoke a conversation.
Nearly half of Americans would have trouble finding $400 to pay for an emergency. I’m one of them.

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.
