Understanding the Many Faces of Hunger in America
Sunday, February 9, 10:00am – noon
By RSVP only to Joy@JewishCollaborativeOC.org
The Jewish Collaborative of Orange County is pleased to host native Detroiter and longtime Tucson resident Liz Kanter Grosskind in Orange County on Sunday, February 9th, for a meet-and-greet brunch from 10am-noon at a private home in Irvine.
In addition to bringing the current work of Mazon to light, this program will also honor the agricultural holiday of T”u b’Shevat that begins the following Monday evening by incorporating elements of a traditional T”u b’Shevat seder into both our brunch and our learning. Liz’s lecture topic is “Understanding the Many Faces of Hunger in America and How to Help Those in Need.”
Through advocacy, education and strategic partnerships, Mazon takes action to impact the lives of millions of people who struggle with hunger by providing funding, training and resources to nonprofit organizations in the United States and Israel who share our commitment to advocating to end hunger. Mazon supports advocacy and public policy efforts to protect and strengthen America’s government food and nutrition programs and also provides funding to a range of anti-hunger organizations including food banks, legal-service organizations, statewide coalitions and advocacy groups
