Weʼre raising £200 to provide food for those in need in Israel
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Leket collect 2.5 million meals from hotels/ functions/ canteens and the IDF, plus they pick 17.000 tons (!!!!) of fruit and veg which would otherwise go to waste, and deliver all this to almost 200 charities throughout the country, reaching 175.000 people!
Just to clarify, LEKET don't BUY any food, this is all food that would otherwise have gone to waste. But with 50.000 volunteers, a logistics centre and some refrigerated lorries, they can get it from where it is surplus to where it is sorely needed. Each pound donated generates 4 pounds worth of food, as the food itself is free.
