Mission: To lead the safe, effective, and efficient collection and distribution of surplus nutritious food in Israel to those who need it.
Rashi already has a relationship with this organization because our students work in their gleaning fields when they go to Israel in 8th Grade.
Israel has one of the highest rates of poverty in the world. 1 in 3 Israeli children is hungry. The problem isn’t that there isn’t enough food, it’s not getting to the people who need it.
Rescues prepared food from the army, company cafeterias, catering halls, and hotels. Collects food from farmers’ fields. Stores, processes, and disseminates food to 200,000 hungry people in Israel.
