Charity for Israel
Although the concept of hunger may seem like an experience of distance history in civilized countries, there are still thousands of people who suffer from chronic hunger and devastation. Extreme food deprivation and insecurity have made many people go without food for days.
Food insecurity describes a condition where a family is unable to buy or manage meals according to their food requirements in terms of quality and quantity needed to survive well There are times when food insecurity can prolong for a longer period due to financial distress.
According to research, around 8.3% of families living in Israel have to go through mild food insecurity. Almost 10.6% live with a higher level of food insecurity. We at Meir Panim are committed to helping 10.6% of those who have to deal with food insecurity. We collaborate with local communities and do everything in our access and power to help and diminish their food requirements by offering them food security.

Charity for Israel Now and Save Lives
Like many other non-profit charity organizations, we intend to help people to fight against poverty, hunger, devastation, and sickness. We are committed to helping our people and providing them food security with dignity and self-respect.
At Meir Panim, we take care of young, old, or anyone in need of our assistance -especially during the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns. When everyone was keeping their distance to save their lives, we went ahead and held hands with hungry and devastated people. Although our branch in Or Akiva is closed on Fridays, we decided to keep it functional since the number of people in need was growing. We distributed meals for Shabbat, Challah, and candles so that everyone can enjoy the blessings of a beautiful Shabbat!
