East Texas Food Bank receives grant from
MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger

(Tyler, Texas) August 14, 2013 – The East Texas Food Bank has received a generous grant of $10,000
from MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, which will help support our mission of fighting hunger
and feeding hope in East Texas. MAZON has been a supporter of the East Texas Food Bank for 14

“This amazing organization is unique in how it has stood shoulder to shoulder with food banks in the
fight against hunger on so many levels,” said Dennis Cullinane, executive director of the East Texas
Food Bank. “We are truly grateful for the loyal support that MAZON has given the East Texas Food
Bank over the years.”

In addition to distributing food to more than 200 partner agencies across 26 counties, the East Texas
Food Bank also advocates for the needs of hungry people in East Texas. This is accomplished in a variety
of ways, including: increasing public awareness of hunger; mobilizing the public in the fight against
hunger; communicating with local, state and national legislators on issues of hunger; and helping eligible
East Texans to register for benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This
generous grant from MAZON will help the East Texas Food Bank pursue these important objectives.

MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is a national nonprofit organization working to end hunger in the United
States and Israel. MAZON, which means “food” or “sustenance” in Hebrew, was the first national organization
to rally the American Jewish community around the issue of hunger, and remains the only national Jewish
organization dedicated exclusively to that same cause. For more information about MAZON, visit
