This Pesach was indeed a very Chag Sameach (Happy Holiday) for tens of thousands of Israelis in need due to Meir Panim.
With the help of donors worldwide and hands-on volunteers from every age and corner of the country, Meir Panim was able to provide:
- 25,000 Holiday and Seder Meals
- 15,000 Holiday Food Pantry Baskets
- 2 Million Shekels ($548,235.00) worth of Grocery Shopping Cards
- In-person Seder meals in two of our branches
Planning for Pesach starts as soon as winter begins with logistics and ordering, and is implemented from the day after the Purim holiday, one month before. Matzahs and other staples are delivered, kitchens cleaned and re-cleaned, and thousands of volunteers come together to cook, package and deliver meals.
Coming together to accomplish such a great task makes it that much more meaningful, and each of our patrons truly appreciates the helping hand with love, kindness, and dedication.
We are so grateful for the incredible generosity that enables us to do this lifesaving work!
