Take the Advocacy Pledge: Along with coming out to volunteer in person during this year's EBTT we hope you'll "take the advocacy pledge" to end food insecurity around the US with our partners at MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger. If you sign up to take the pledge, you will receive a packet with an interactive "placemat" activity (appropriate for both children and adults) that will teach you more about the root causes of food insecurity as well as postcards to mail to elected officials that encourage them to take legislative action to end this injustice. It's completely free to participate!
