All food gleaned, sorted and packed by Leket volunteers is distributed to our 200+ nonprofit partners throughout Israel. This rescued food is provided to Israelis in need of all ages, backgrounds and regions of Israel.
Leket supporters can help in many ways beyond volunteering in the fields or at the logistics center.
You can also organize a fundraiser or chessed (charity) project, host an information session for your community, congregation or organization or support Leket Israel on the occasion of a simcha (special occasion) or community event by opening a personalized charity page.
