PROVIDING NUTRITIOUS FOOD TO ISRAELIS IN NEED
The organization sources, collects and redistributes fresh, perishable, quality food, which would otherwise be considered waste, from farms, hotels, military bases and catering halls. This is done in an effort to aid the quarter of the country’s population that lives below the poverty line.
Leket works with 195 non-profits throughout the country to provide nutritious food to over 175,000 Israelis weekly. Last year alone, Leket collected and delivered over 30 million pounds of fresh, healthy food for the needy.
Leket, It’s Biblical
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.
