The Food Waste and Rescue in Israel Report. Read here.
The paradox of nutritional insecurity in the face of large scale food wastage led in 2003 to the establishment of Leket Israel. Today, serving as the country's largest food bank and food rescue network, Leket Israel's primary mission is to alleviate the problem of nutritional insecurity through the rescue and redistribution of excess food to benefit Israel's needy. As an umbrella organization, Leket Israel also work's to assist at-risk population groups and the nonprofit organizations (NPOs) who serve them through nutrition education, capacity building, and food safety projects designed to improve professional standards among NPOs and other food provision agencies.
