In July, the Leket Agriculture team rescued and harvested 2,043 tons (4.1 million lbs) of fresh produce from famers. If we compare it to July last year, it’s a 40% increase! All produce was distributed to those in need throughout the country.

During the third week of the coronavirus crisis our new partnerships and initiatives have continued to meaningfully expand in addition to our regular food-rescue operations. 

In a joint operation with local authorities, local community centers and different nonprofits, Leket brings boxes of fresh produce to various distribution points in the different cities. From there, the boxes are delivered to needy families with the help of local volunteers. 

We are now working with tens of cities including Tiberias, Mazkeret Batya, Bet Shemesh, Givat Shmuel, Bet Shean, Modiin, Jerusalem, Migdal Haemek, Lod, Bat Yam and more. The nonprofits we have built new partnerships with distributed boxes of fresh produce to needy families and also sent 150 volunteers to help deliver hot meals to the homes of needy people. These nonprofits include “Acharai”, “Tovanot B’Hinuch”, “Enosh” and more.

Our partnerships with companies including Intel, Amdocs, SAP and McDonald’s have assisted in funding operations. The IDF Home Front Command have also helped through providing trucks to carry and deliver the fresh produce. Our teams delivered a weeks’ worth of meals to the homes of 9,000 needy people. Since the start of the Emergency Relief Program, some 100,000 hot meals have been provided. 

We met our weekly goal and managed to increase the numbers of meals going out by 30%. With Passover soon approaching, we are preparing to distribute next week some 100,000 hot meals for Seder night and the holiday to 10,500 needy people.

This week also saw thousands of tons of crops ready for harvest left in the fields of many farmers. During the entire month of March, Project Leket teams picked some 1,800,000 kg. of fruit and vegetables, double the regular monthly average. We have had to rent additional refrigeration space due to this large increase, and our trucks are busy delivering to every new location we are providing to.

This week, our Leket drivers and Leket to Table team managed to rescue and distribute 44,300 hot meals to the nonprofit organizations we work with. All meals are made up of a main course and two side dishes.

Each needy person received a box containing a weeks’ worth of meals, in total some 36,000 meals were distributed. We managed to double the number of meal recipients compared to last week. Next week, we hope to provide 9,000 needy with a weeks’ worth of hot meals. We also are making preparations for Passover to assure that no one will go hungry.

This week we also began a new project with the nonprofit Nevet, supplying hot meals and nutritious breakfast packages to the homes of hundreds of families of at-risk teens from different schools.

The quantities of fresh produce being donated at present are vast due to the closure of hotels, catering companies, restaurants and more. Due to the importance of supplying the needy population with fresh fruit and vegetables, we do not turn down any requests from farmers to come and rescue produce. We have started renting additional refrigerating space, and our trucks are delivering the produce all over the country. This week our Leket field coordinators, team of drivers and logistics workers rescued some 1036172 lbs. (470 tons) of fresh fruit and vegetables, some of which has already been delivered to our nonprofit partners.

Many of those they assist worked until recently in factories as the disability benefits they are entitled to are too small to live off of. Due to the current crisis, they have lost their jobs.

March 22nd, 2020

Since the onset of the coronavirus crisis we have had to come up with innovative solutions to enable us to continue operating.  We had to devise an alternate plan of how to serve the housebound needy population as well as the elderly.

On Thursday, we launched our unique emergency program for these difficult times. We distributed over 15,000 hot meals to 2,500 needy and elderly cooked for us by North Food catering company. 6 meals were delivered to the doorstep of each recipient, enabling us to provide them with a hot meal for Shabbat and for each week day. On Wednesday of this week, we aim to distribute another round of hot meals to an increased number of people, especially the elderly.

Thank you all for you interest during this time and for following our daily updates.

Today our new meal distribution program for the elderly and those who are house bound began operating. The hot meals for this new project are cooked by “North Food” company whom we also work with throughout the year, a wonderful  company which cooks from the heart for the needy. The new program enables us to assist them too, as now they can continue employing their workers. All the cooked meals meet strict food health and safety standards.

As well as this unique new program, our teams are continuing to collect and rescue excess food and to distribute it to the needy.

The food will be distributed through our nonprofit partners.

Tomorrow we will begin to operate our meal distribution program for the elderly and for those who have to stay home, bringing them meals to their doors. Stay updated!  We will continue to give daily updates throughout this time.

March 17th, 2020

We are continuing our efforts to rescue and distribute as much food as we can to those who need it most. Yesterday, we rescued and delivered 8,789 hot meals from IDF army bases and companies who are still working.
