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.
