About this product

Pesia's Kitchen: Rescuing food to alleviate hunger in Israel Organizational mission: Pesias Kitchen aims to end chronic hunger by rescuing abundant supplies of surplus food and delivering them to those who live in the most critical of circumstances. Overview: Founded in 2011​,​ Pesias Kitchen - aptly named after the familys legendary grandmother Pesia - was formed by the grandchildren and great grandchildren of this notable woman who was known to have fed many poor and needy people in her shteitel in Vologyn​,​ in old Poland. It is in this spirit that we are fighting hunger in our own backyard. Collecting and distributing over 200 tons of fresh produce​,​ cooked food and baked goods​,​ Pesia's Kitchen adheres to a cost-effective​,​ stream-lined model that allows us to provide 700​,​000 meals to thousands of families every year at the cost of 35 cents a meal. Our committed​,​ hands-on staff​,​ our dozens of volunteers and our ongoing partnerships with other NGOs are the keys to our success. Collaborating with other welfare organizations extends our reach and assists these organizations to alleviate the financial burden many nonprofit organizations experience when working to feed their clients. We operate under the professional supervision of Leket​,​ Israel's National Food Bank​,​ as we take great precaution regarding health issues. At the beginning of the Corona virus crisis​,​ with the steep rise of people in crisis​,​ Pesias Kitchen built a field kitchen to make vegetarian stew that​,​ together with fresh bread and a fruit or vegetable that we provide​,​ constitutes a healthy and fully nourishing meal. Under the supervision of a Food Security Specialist​,​ the field kitchen was constructed to produce 400 portions every four hours. The need: The Poverty Threshold in 2019​,​ published by the Israeli humanitarian organization Latet​,​ found that 530​,​000 households in Israel (20.9%) and 2​,​306​,​000 Israelis (25.6%) live in poverty - 1​,​007​,​000 of them are children. The government​,​ unfortunately​,​ increasingly relies on NGOs to care for economically distressed people. In addition​,​ today​,​ as a result of the catastrophic effects of the COVID-19 epidemic​,​ many people in Israel have lost their sources of income and have been left without any means of support. Every day we are receiving more and more requests to feed hungry people. Most negatively affected are the elderly​,​ holocaust survivors​,​ homeless people​,​ low income families​,​ asylum seekers​,​ sheltered women and the large African refugee community of south Tel Aviv. All of these people lack the resources to purchase even the most basic food products. In view of the growing demand​,​ we are working to increase our capacity and plan to distribute 1​,​000​,​000 meals in the Tel Aviv area during 2021. Target population: During FY 2020 we provided over 700​,​000 meals to more than 3​,​000 individual people including: Two elderly day centers (120 people​,​ 25 Holocaust survivors); A school for children with behavioral difficulties (80-90 students); Low income public housing for elderly people (60 people); An emergency shelter for addicted women active in the sex trade (16 women); Two shelters for women and children who are victims of domestic violence (20 women​,​ 30 children); Ten homeless shelters (100 men) and nine preschool programs for children of asylum seekers (450 children). In addition​,​ we provide meals to people in need from nearby communities. Please help ​,​ each meal costs only 1G$ #BLOCKCHAINFUNDRAISING I G$ Wallet link ⬇️ You've got a request from yoni ben ami.
