Ronit and Binny are just one of the many couples who participate in Leket Israel’s meal rescue program on their wedding day.
As part of this initiative, Leket has many loyal caterers and wedding halls that partner in providing surplus food to Israel’s most needy. One of these caterers is Naftali Kalfa from Endive Catering. Throughout Israel’s long wedding season, Naftali and his catering company donate hundreds, if not thousands, of fresh, quality meals.
Kalfa commented, “For us, working with Leket Israel is not only important, but is also a great privilege.”
Leket Israel is tremendously grateful to partners like Naftali, and looks forward to growing this initiative to include more catering companies.
Alon Nagar, event manager at Olmaya, a popular Jerusalem wedding venue where Ronit and Binny will be getting married this summer, said, “Just last week, when working with the Leket staff to rescue hundreds of surplus meals from an event, the Leket staff was so quiet and efficient that we hardly even noticed that they were there. They came in, collected all the excess food in a safe, clean and effective way, and worked with the utmost respect and care. Who could ask for more?” adding, “I am absolutely honored and humbled to work with such an organization that saves nutritious food from destruction and waste.”
