Nutrition is our
number one priority.
Because no child, no senior citizen, no new immigrant, no man or woman who is down on their luck should ever go hungry.
Colel Chabad, in partnership with the Joint Distribution Committee, has been entrusted by the Israeli Government with the lofty task of eliminating hunger among the country’s neediest. Our nationwide undertaking is now in its sixth year, spanning 239 municipalities and providing thousands of meals each month to elderly people living alone on limited incomes, families with children who cannot afford to purchase sufficient food, and Holocaust survivors.
What We’ve Accomplished Together
Colel Chabad has placed nutrition at the top of its priority list since its founding in 1788. We believe that being a charity for Israel means ensuring the future of its people is healthy and prosperous.
Over the past two centuries, we have provided millions of meals to communities in need. We continue to work diligently with our partners and donors to provide food for those who need it most.
We’ve also developed a network of food banks and pantries throughout the country, providing meals to homebound seniors and helping families keep food on the table during hard times.
Colel Chabad leads Jewish charities in Israel by partnering with the government’s National Food Security Initiative. This highly-impactful program makes a significant difference in the lives of those who struggle with attaining and maintaining nutritional independence.
Over 8,500 impoverished families throughout Israel receive monthly deliveries of essential kitchen staples through our Household Groceries Program. Another 26,130 families carry a Colel Chabad Eshel credit card – enabling them to shop at major supermarkets worry-free.
Colel Chabad doesn’t just make it easy to fiscally donate to Israel – we also facilitate robust volunteer efforts for those who wish to contribute their time to the cause. Our Jerusalem-based Pantry Packers plant is popular among tourists, locals, and long-term volunteer staff alike.
While soup kitchens are a staple among the programs offered by Israel charity organizations, we recognize a specialized need for baby formula due to its high cost. Colel Chabad provides 3,000 impoverished single mothers monthly cards to buy baby formula, ensuring that infants and young children have the nutrition they need to grow healthy and strong.
