Negev Dinner 2018


Leket Israel

Leket Israel

The 2018 Negev Dinner is supporting Leket Israel. Leket Israel is the largest food bank in Israel, and has been a leader and an expert in food rescue and distribution to needy people nationwide. At the core of Leket Israel’s transformative work is the complex logistical operation of sourcing, collecting, and transporting surplus food to where it is needed. Stringent food safety standards and Ministry of Health guidelines are maintained throughout the process. With Leket’s fleet of 20 trucks and vans, their staff and volunteers transport each week hundreds of tons of rescued food throughout the country to feed approximately 175,000 Israelis in need, regardless of age, gender, religion, or ethnic background.
