Last month, Leket Israel received a call that the Shikma farm in the Negev had a surplus of potatoes that could not be sold in the market.

Even though the potatoes were healthy and good quality the farmers found that they were unable to sell them due to their thin peels, so they decided to donate the entire surplus to Leket.

Due to Leket Israel’s professional reputation and strong partnerships with farmers around the country, this farmer knew he did not have to destroy his crop.

During the night, 8 trucks traveled down south to pick up the crop of 200 tons of potatoes. These 200 tons of potatoes will feed 100,000 needy families.
