The youth of  beyond 3:30 had a blast impressing the judges of #FeedTomorrow Week with their growing cooking skills! And there, in the back - that's our board member  Betty Gaertner on the judges panel!

We partner with the  Toronto Foundation for Student Success to make sure this wonderful program, which includes a healthy meal, cooking skills, nutrition education, physical activity, homework help and mentorship, can continue helping kids stay healthy and on track to bright futures.

Last year, 72% of  beyond 3:30 students said they gained a much better understanding of nutrition and food preparation, 68% became much more physically active, and over 70% improved their grades!

For over 30 years, MAZON Canada has dispersed critical funds to both Jewish and non-Jewish front-line food projects across Canada.

Wondering exactly how your donated dollars have an impact? Here are a few more examples from among the 125+ organizations we funded this year.
  • Madawaska Valley Food Bank in Barry's Bay, ON are a model of one type of organization MAZON Canada loves to support - small, rural, have limited outside funding and are run entirely by volunteers. Our grant goes to purchasing highly nutritional food that rarely gets donated, like fresh fruits, vegetables, meat and eggs.
