About Leket Israel

Leket Israel, Israel’s National Food Bank and largest food rescue organization, rescues nutritious excess food (that would otherwise be destroyed or left to rot in a landfill), from hundreds of farmers, corporate cafeterias, hotels and the Israeli army. The food is delivered, free of charge, to hungry Israelis of all backgrounds through Leket Israel’s non-profit partners. Leket Israel is apolitical and is the only organization rescuing food en masse for Israelis in need.

Each USD donation of $1 provides 6 lbs. of fresh food.


If you provide an email, you will automatically receive a US tax receipt from American Friends of Leket Israel –including the fair market value of the crypto in USD– after donating.

Why Donate Crypto Directly? Taxes!

The IRS classifies cryptocurrency as property for tax purposes. Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This makes Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support American Friends of Leket Israel. Donations are processed by The Giving Block, and immediately sold and transferred to American Friends of Leket Israel in USD.
