Nitzav Refael Soup Kitchen and Food DistributionJU_admin
Each week, Nitzav Refael distributes more than 800 packages of food and basic goods to the homes of families in need. On several Jewish holidays during the year, more than 1,700 families receive packages with special items for these festivals. In addition, the organization runs a soup kitchen that serves over 400 people a day in a dignified setting. Another 300 prepared meals are distributed daily to the homes of individuals whose situation prevents them from making their way to the dining hall.
Nitzav Refael relies on more than 100 regular volunteers – a number that swells around holiday times when extra packages are prepared and delivered. Not only do volunteers help prepare, serve, and distribute food in Jerusalem, but many drive daily to Nitzav Refael from around the country to pick up food packages they then distribute in their hometowns.
