Feeding Israel’s poorest and hungriest citizens has been at the core of Yad Eliezer for over thirty years.
And our help is needed now more than ever.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, statistics showed that an alarming 26% of Israeli households were already living in poverty, unable to put food on the table. Currently, with the unemployment rate at an all time high due to COVID 19, the situation has significantly worsened, with countless additional families plunged into crisis. Parents are struggling to purchase even the most basic of groceries to keep their children fed.
But Yad Eliezer is, as always, driven to bring relief for as many as possible through our Food Boxes program.
Packed at our warehouse, our boxes contain carefully selected food staples plus other basic necessities for the home that are reviewed on an ongoing basis to ensure they are practical and that they provide recipients with healthy options for meal preparation. We may be a Jerusalem charity but we distribute our boxes to thousands of suffering familiesthroughout the country on a weekly basis, supplying essentials that alleviate hunger and bring nutrition and stability where they're so desperately needed.
Yad Eliezer’s financially sound procedures, including the critical help of our volunteer packers, keep our overhead incredibly low-- so low that 96% of each dollar you donate is being used to feed Israel’s neediest families.
Applications for food assistance have skyrocketed these past few months and there’s no telling when the situation will improve. Now more than ever, we need your help to keep Israeli families fed and functioning.
Please join us in delivering nourishment - and dignity - to over 5,000 hungry families each month. With your support, we can reach even more!
The Almanos Fund helps widows in need, who still have children at home, with costs ranging from daily living expenses to medical treatments and weddings for their kids. Help us alleviate some of their pain by lightening some of their burden.
