ADVOCACY AND COMMUNITY ACTION

HOPE-NET PARTNERS

Hope-Net partners with other local and national organizations to increase the overall impact of our services on the community.

MAZON
For several years, Hope-Net has worked with, and received funding from, MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger.  This partnership has worked to help set community priorities and perform legislative advocacy.  MAZON (Hebrew for "food") is one of the largest privately supported philanthropic organizations addressing hunger in the United States.

The organization is not a foundation but offers grants from the contributions of their supporters. Each year, Hope-Net participates in the MAZON supported state-wide conference on hunger. This conference brings together advocates and legislators to wrestle with hunger issues in California with the goal of passing legislation to meet these needs.

MAZON is also a member of the National Anti-Hunger Organization (NAHO).

Los Angeles Coalition to End Hunger & Homelessness (LACEHH) and Hunger Action LA
Hope-Net also partners with LACEHH and Hunger Action LA to address more local needs related to hunger and food insecurity.  Together we participate with other agencies in supporting "Hunger Action Day", typically held in May or June.

This event, sponsored by the California Hunger Action Coalition (CHOC) is a day of legislative visits and briefings on current state hunger issues.

QueensCare
Hope-Net also partners with QueensCare of Los Angeles to provide preventative programs and improve access to healthcare for our community.  QueensCare is a faith-based, non-profit organization, that seeks to create communities of care, faith, and good health.

Since its founding in 1998, QueensCare has provided approximately $200 million in healthcare services to the Los Angeles community and works with Hope-Net’s food pantry network to provide convenient access to preventative care.
