Will you help us deliver food for Passover for families in need?

This year with COVID-19 having destroyed the economy, there are thousands of families relying on Meir Panim

Harvey Peretz dreamed about opening a restaurant. In 2018, that dream became a reality when he opened his doors in the beautiful town of Caesarea. Every day, Harvey enjoyed preparing delicious meals for his customers- but, in the blink of an eye, all that changed when COVID-19 hit and forced him to close his restaurant a year ago. 

Like so many that fell on hard times, Harvey turned to Meir Panim for help. However, what he got was so much more than just a hot meal. 

Amidst his struggles, Harvey saw an opportunity to put his culinary skills to good use and began helping the Or Avika branch plan and prepare high-quality, home-cooked meals to feed the thousands of other residents now in need of this service. 

Harvey, like all Meir Panim volunteers and recipients, was quickly welcomed in like family. In fact, his outstanding service was recognized by other volunteers who helped get him a new job. Since starting, Harvey continues to come back to Meir Panim as often as he can to show his appreciation and help others in his position get back on their feet.

IT’S ALL OVER THE NEWS, israelis ARE SUFFERING FROM POVERTY because of COVID-19

Heartbreaking Statistics

How has Covid-19 impacted Israel?
  • 2.5 Million Israelis have been economically hurt by the virus
  • 1 in 7 Israelis are skipping meals
  • 2 in 5 children face hunger on a daily basis
Who is Meir Panim?

Meir Panim, a non-profit organization in support of Israel, was established to promote, support and further activities which are committed to providing both immediate and long-term relief to the impoverished- young and old alike- via a dynamic range of food and social service programs, all aimed at helping the needy with dignity and respect.

How has Meir Panim responded?
Before COVID-19, Meir Panim served patrons primarily out of our Restaurant-Style Soup Kitchens from surplus food we rescued from nearby establishments.

With hotels and restaurants (including our own) shuttered, we lost our main source of food at the same time the demand for our services was the greatest.

Meir Panim wasted no time and quickly transitioned to become a fully operational kitchen cooking, preparing, and packaging all our meals from scratch. Since the pandemic, Meir Panim has tripled its output and served ten times the amount of individuals through Meals-on-Wheels.

With no sign of things slowing down anytime soon, we remain committed to helping as many people for as long as it takes.

How has Meir Panim helped their clients this passover?
Meir Panim understands that holidays, especially Passover, can be expensive, but that should not stop anyone from being able to celebrate.

This Passover, Meir Panim will be providing cooked seder meals with all seder plate components included, holiday baskets with pantry staples like matzah, oil, sugar, canned products, etc… so our recipients can cook at home, as well pre-paid grocery shopping cards so that those in need can celebrate too.

Passover celebrates our freedom from slavery and Meir Panim provides freedom from poverty.

This year, with COVID-19 having destroyed the economy, there are thousands of individuals like Harvey who rely on Meir Panim as a temporary safety net to help them avoid the crutches of poverty. 

While Passover is the celebration of our freedom from slavery, Meir Panim is providing freedom from poverty every day.

You can be their salvation from poverty by sponsoring Passover meals for the needy!
