1.8 million people in Israel, including two out of every five Israeli children, are suffering from hunger. By supporting American Friends of Meir Panim, you can help provide hot meals for Israelis in need. Through Buy Israel Week, and an anonymous donor, you can double your donation to this worthy cause.
Especially at the time of year when we are all worrying about our Pesach seders, and hoping that there is enough food for all our guests, it’s important to remember those who may not have enough food even for themselves. Meir Panim is happy to help those in need, but need our help to do it!
American Friends of Meir Panim seeks to diminish the harmful effects of poverty on thousands of families across Israel by supporting a range of food and social service programs aimed at helping the needy with respect, including free restaurants, meals-on-wheels, school lunch programs, prepaid food card distribution, vocational training and after-school youth clubs.
The programs funded by AFMP help to alleviate the pain of poverty in the short-term, and provide long-term, proactive solutions that help needy Israelis break out of the cycle of poverty and become active, self-sufficient members of society.
