On December 20, Repair the World Los Angeles, in partnership with the Jewish Federation, NuRoots, MAZON and PATH, brought their communities together for an interactive service-learning experience.
During the event at the MAZON headquarters in Encino, participants learned about food insecurity in America and packed food kits for those experiencing homelessness.
“Though they had to battle a broken water main on Ventura to arrive, the menschiest group of people gathered to learn and volunteer together,” Liz Braun-Lilenfeld, deputy director of outreach at MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, told the Journal. “Everyone showed up ready to ask thoughtful questions, share their personal passion about food and housing insecurity advocacy and roll up their sleeves.”
