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. Though covid seems to finally be past, parents are still trying to recoup their jobs. With the cost of food steadily rising, the situation continues to worsen, and countless additional families are in 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. 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!
Yad Eliezer's Almanos Pesach Campaign is working urgently to bring $500 in relief to women in our Keren Almanos, in time for yom tov. This aid will help them purchase Pesach foods and other yom tov essentials for their households.
While we celebrate the Holidays, IDF soldiers defend us on the front lines. Some of them live in poverty and cannot afford proper holiday meals. Let’s not forget them. Let's give them a taste of the holidays!
