Inspired by Jewish values and ideals, MAZON is a national organization fighting to end hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds in the United States and Israel.

Since its founding in 1985, MAZON has been committed to ensuring that vulnerable people have access to the resources they need to put food on the table. Today, MAZON is a leading voice in the anti-hunger field, developing strategic initiatives focused on communities that are at particular risk of hunger and are often overlooked — this includes military families, veterans, Native Americans, single mothers, LGBTQ seniors, and the people of Puerto Rico.

MAZON’s work is founded on a central belief: regardless of a person’s circumstance, no one deserves to be hungry. Ending hunger is a matter of rectifying fundamental injustices, rooted in our Jewish values of tzedek (pursuing justice) and b’tselem Elohim (respecting the inherent dignity of every person) — not just amending policies to expand access, but righting historical wrongs.

A Wishing Tree to End Hunger

The Wishing Tree is a collaborative project between Yoko Ono and the audience that engages with it. The Wishing Tree is an open letter to individuals, inviting them to write down their wishes on small tags of paper before attaching them to a live tree.

What is your wish for those around the world who suffer from hunger?
