Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To help all who come to us in need of food, water, everyday practical needs get what they need at no cost to them. To bring a message of hope to all Israeli's.

To enlarge our base of partners and like-minded people, organizations, and businesses so we can help feed as many families as possible.

We have teams in several countries who take the message of who we are and what we do.

We have nearly doubled in size every year since 2012.
