MAZON Canada Grant for Food Relief

On June 2017, JFSC became a proud recipient of a grant from MAZON Canada.

MAZON Canada is the “national Jewish response to hunger”, raising awareness of poverty and hunger and distributing funds to organizations that help provide basic food relief for those in need.

Our grocery store gift card program is aimed at reducing food bank dependency and gives the clients the respect and dignity to be able to go to a grocery store and purchase whichever items they feel they need plus fresh produce, dairy products and meat. Thanks to MAZON Canada, JFSC was able to distribute grocery gift cards to 30 households.

We are so fortunate for the support our grocery gift card program receives from MAZON Canada as well as our wonderful local donors.
