Review for MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, Los Angeles, CA, USA
As a community activist for many years I was aware of the work of Mazon through my
synagogue, but most importantly through the funding Mazon provided the Atlanta Community Food Bank. The Food Bank is a pivot point for the Atlanta region in addressing all the issues around
Hunger..... employment, childcare, healthy choices, success in school, food stamps, hot
lunches. Mazon's support for over 25 years was a statement of it's appreciation of the Food Bank and it's work. Mazon targeted the most appropriate location for it's support in my community.
Now that I am part of the Board of Mazon I see the meticulous decision making and integrity it
takes to build the respect Mazon has throughout the country.
The underlying philosophy, strategic
planning, superb implementation of programs, relationships with people and organizations in the field as a team player, consultant , and valued colleague in addressing Hunger has
kept Mazon in the forefront of Hunger amelioration.
From outside and inside, I have experienced and respect this organization deeply.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Increase funding to allow more volunteer activism across the country under the supervision of Mazon staff.
