With your help, we can distribute grocery bags of essential food items for the needy in central Israel.
Poverty in Israel has reached emergency levels.
Over 680,000 Israeli families do not have enough money to feed themselves.
That means adults, elders, and children, are going to sleep hungry every night.
Many of these families have only recently hit on hard times, due to job loss or sickness, and are struggling to get back on their feet.
What can we do to feed these families, restore their dignity, and help them rebuild their lives?
Israel’s most innovative charity crusaders know the secret to helping poor and hungry families.
And they do it with care and sensitivity – making sure to preserve the dignity of the receivers.
This big secret is not a soup kitchen, a community grocery sale, or even a charity box of food. It’s one of the simplest inventions in the world… a bag.

Food bags are delivered silently to families’ doorsteps late at night by teams of local volunteers.
Because the food is in shopping bags donated by local markets, the bags look like a standard grocery delivery. Nobody would ever think it’s from a food bank.
In some situations, only the father or mother knows they’re receiving charity. The rest of the family thinks the parents bought the groceries!
This discreet method of giving is the best way to preserve the recipient’s self-respect.
After all, being poor and needy is an extremely vulnerable and sensitive position to be in.
That’s why the Bible tells us to give to the poor and promises blessings for doing so.
In Biblical tradition, there are eight levels of giving charity.
When you donate food bags to needy families, you fulfill the two highest levels of charitable giving:
Donate food bags TODAY to feed the poor adults, elders, and children of Israel, and give charity the Biblical way!
You’ll nourish families, preserve their dignity, help them get back on their feet, and give and get God’s abundant blessings.
