(Noun) Hebrew | Food that provides sustenance


What we do

From soup bags to meal bags and more, Mazon Australia contributes to alleviating food insecurity in Australia.

We engage with local communities through our seasonal food appeals, responding to need with access to pantry items and toiletries.

Food Appeals

Our food appeals correspond with the Jewish harvest festivals of Pesach, Shavuot and Sukkot. Donors give non-perishable food or funds as tzedakah (charity) which we distibute to those in need.

Street Pantries

Our street pantries operate on a 'give what you can, take what you need' basis.

Our street pantries are located in Caulfield East, East St Kilda, Notting Hill, Oakleigh, and South Melbourne.

In the Community

We work with Pathways, BayCISS, the Women's Prison Network and more to distribute food and help people develop low-cost kitchen skills. 

Hunger in Australia

Why Support Mazon Australia?

The Foodbank Hunger Report 2023 found that in the past year 3.7 million Australian households (36%) experienced moderate to severe food insecurity. 

Mazon Australia achieves our purpose through food appeals, our street pantries and our community partnerships.
