Mazon Awards
Grants Worth
$20,000

New York (JTA) — The na-
tional Jewish hunger relief
organization Mazon, which
emerged less than a year ago as
a concerted Jewish response to
hunger, announced here last
week that it will award some
$20,000 in grants to seven relief
organizations.
The largest grant, totalling
some $10,000, will go to Boston-
based international develop-
ment group, American Jewish
World Service, for use in an
agricultural development pro-
ject in Sri Lanka.
The six other grant recipients
are: the West Presbyterian
Church Senior Center in St.
Louis; the East Dallas Coop-
erative Parish; the Jewish Foun-
dation for Sustenance of Right-
eous Gentiles; the United
Jewish Council Sabbath Lunch
Program in . New York; the
Maryland Food Committee; and
the Californiabased Soya group.
The grant announcements
followed a meeting of the Mazon
Board. The group, which has
raised $78,000 to date — most
of which has gone to setting up
the organization's infrastruc-
ture in cities across the country
— encourages voluntary con-
tribution of a three percent sur-
charge on the cost of Jewish af-
fairs, including weddings and
Bar Mitzvahs.
Board members heard an
assessment of hunger in the
United States at the meeting
here from Larry Brown, chair-
man of the Department of
Public Health at Harvard
University. Brown represented
Mazon's advisory board at the
meeting.
Hunger in the United States,
Brown said, is a symptom of a
totally different malady than
that of African countries. "We
have enough food supplies not
only to feed our own people but
to feed the whole Third World,"
Brown said. "But we don't have
a system to insure that food
reaches people."
Hunger in the United States
rose drastically in the final year
of the Carter Administration,
and the problem, according to
Brown, has been "greatly ex-
acerbated" during the Ad-
ministration of President
Reagan.
The "safety net" of welfare
and other types of aid to the
poor has some gaping holes,
Brown said. In 1983-1984, the
government slashed $12 billion
from the food stamps program
that many of America's hungry
depend on.
These cuts, coupled with a tax
structure under which the poor
get poorer, contributed to the
rise in hunger in the decade, he
said. Brown encouraged the
Board of Mazon to concentrate
their funds on public education,
oriented to challenge public
policies which he said created
hunger in this country.

Mazon grant recipients:
