LEKET ISRAEL: A JOURNEY OF GIVING
Leket Israel is the largest food bank in Israel, and has been a leader and an expert in food rescue nationwide since 2003. The organization sources, collects and redistributes fresh produce, which would otherwise be considered waste. This is done in an effort to aid the quarter of the country’s population that lives below the poverty line.
LEKET: MEANS TO GLEAN
Leket Israel Follows an Ancient Biblical Commandment which calls for farmers to leave any food which falls from the tree so the poor of israel can come and eat them for free. The word “Leket” means to Glean, we glean the fields across israel and get the food to those who need it most.
“As Israel wrestles with the highest poverty rates among developed nations, the work of Leket Israel in rescuing and distributing food is a lifesaving endeavour that I highly applaud.” CHERYL WEBER
“If it wasn’t for places like the soup kitchen and organizations like Leket Israel, I would be eating out of garbage pails. Now I can spend Sabbath with my Family” Yitzhak
