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.
