Food Bank appreciates support

Posted: Monday, July 20, 2009

The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank would like to thank MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger for their continued support in funding our programs. For the past 10 years, the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank has applied for and received grant money from this generous organization. MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is the only American Jewish organization whose sole focus is combating hunger. MAZON (Hebrew for "food") is dedicated to inspiring, educating and mobilizing American Jews in support of ending hunger wherever it exists, strengthening the impact of domestic and international hunger relief programs through grant making and advocating for public policy that values and promotes self-reliance.

Since its founding in 1986, MAZON has awarded grants totaling over $50 million to emergency feeding programs, food banks, anti-hunger advocacy groups, multi-service organizations offering food, shelter and counseling, and small-scale hunger relief and development projects in Israel and poor countries. Locally their dollars help us process a million pounds of food a year for Kenai Peninsula residents.

We at the Food Bank are proud to continue the partnership and strive towards a goal of eliminating hunger worldwide by starting in our own community.
