More Information

Inspired by Jewish values and ideals, MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is a national advocacy organization working to end hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds in the United States and Israel.
 
For more than 36 years, MAZON has worked to ensure that government food programs are available, accessible, and meaningful to those who need them, particularly populations whose unique needs are too often overlooked: veterans, currently serving military families, those living on Tribal lands, in rural America and Puerto Rico, seniors and particularly LGBT seniors, and single mothers. Our efforts are designed to provide people with the resources they need in a manner that is dignified and without judgement. All people — regardless of the circumstances that led to their need for assistance — must
have access to adequate, nutritious food, while retaining their choice, agency, and dignity. The only institution in America that can accomplish this is the government, so our work focuses there.
 
MAZON is a leading voice in Washington D.C. on anti-hunger issues, especially those that involve populations or problems that have been previously overlooked or ignored. We work independently and in coalition with partners to protect and strengthen government nutrition programs that help people put food on the table. We educate communities across the country about the reality of hunger and how they can join us to help end it. We also provide funding, training, and resources to nonprofit organizations across the United States and Israel, which includes a range of partnerships with food banks, legal-service organizations, statewide coalitions, and advocacy groups.
 
MAZON seeks to be an anti-racist organization through its commitment to diversity, inclusion, and justice.
 
Position Overview
MAZON is seeking a summer intern with a demonstrated passion for, and commitment to, the cause of ending hunger and addressing its root causes. Interns may work in our officein Washington, DC, our office in Los Angeles, or remotely. All staff are currently working remotely but we are hopeful we will be able to return to our offices by the time of this internship. The intern will report to the Deputy Director of Public Policy, who is in Washington, DC.
 
As MAZON’s intern, you will be an integral part of MAZON’s team, assisting with research and writing to advance policies that seek to end hunger, particularly given that hunger in both the U.S. and Israel continues to skyrocket in the wake of COVID-19. You will have a unique opportunity to work closely with MAZON’s senior staff and actively contribute to the strategic discussions, planning, and implementation of public policy and programmatic priorities. Activities may include: review of policy and legislative proposals regarding food insecurity, developing strategies in response to those proposals, helping to implement those strategies, crafting social media posts and campaigns, engaging antihunger organizations and Jewish community partners and participating in coalition and/or community events and meetings.
 
Furthermore, working at a small national organization, you will be called on to help with a variety of other duties throughout the internship.
 
Eligibility:
• Rising junior or senior
• Open to all majors in the College of Arts & Sciences
• Strong communication and writing skills required.
