Ray and Rosalind McDonald will be updating us on the great works that are happening in Israel
Leket Canada's staff and volunteers collect donated, excess, nutritional food that would otherwise be discarded from Israeli food producers. The food is then redistributed free of charge, to non-profit organizations throughout the country caring for a range of at risk population groups including the elderly and invalid, the working poor and children at risk.
The food rescue activities focus on four projects:
. Rescue of prepared meals from corporate cafeterias, restaurants, malls and banquet halls.
. Rescue of B grade produce from packing houses.
. Rescue of perishable manufactured products from food manufacturers.
. Rescue of excess agriculture through Project Leket, an initiative that sends volunteers into fields and orchards to gather produce left to rot by farmers.
