Have you always wanted to volunteer, but haven't found the time? Leket Israel lets you take part in unique volunteer activities by day or by night. Now you can participate in rescuing meals for the less fortunate even in the late evening hours through the Leket Meal Rescue Project. Reenergize yourself and join the hundreds of volunteers already making a difference.
Hundreds of volunteers across the country gather each evening to rescue prepared meal surpluses from restaurants, catering companies, corporate cafeterias, banquet halls, shopping malls, bakeries and more. Fresh food is safely collected and redelivered to nonprofit organizations including soup kitchens, shelters, and community centers serving the needy.
Volunteer Activities: This project relies on volunteers to collect donated food and redeliver it to nonprofit organizations serving the needy. Volunteers are trained on-site over a period of a week so food establishments become familiar with the volunteer and the volunteer's private vehicle. For late evening pick-ups, including from celebratory banquet halls, volunteers may be asked to transfer the collected food directly to nonprofit associations and soup kitchens or to transport it to a temporary refrigerated storage room of the organization.
Volunteering is suitable for individuals or groups of up to three people in each activity. There is a need for a private car to travel to and from each food establishment and the beneficiary nonprofits. Short-term and long-term assignments are both possible, with most evening collection activities requiring about an hour and a half.
