// A program of Meir Panim

Meals On Wheels

Even with 5 branches all over Israel, many of Israel’s neediest are unable to travel to our free restaurant-style soup kitchens. That is why Meir Panim’s Meals-On-Wheels program brings food directly to the homes of those who need it most.

The Problem

Meir Panim has developed a strong reputation as Israel’s leading organization to serve the poor and needy. Our staff and volunteers work tirelessly to ensure that everyone who enters our doors hungry, leaves with a full stomach and a “Bright Face” (Meir Panim in Hebrew).

OUr Solution

Meir Panim’s dedicated staff and volunteers take our food on the road so that no one goes hungry, no matter their situation. This is the vision of the Meals-On-Wheels program.

How we are making a difference

Meir Panim is there to help all who need our assistance, regardless of their situation. That is why, we work closely with Israel’s Department of Social Welfare and local municipalities in operating or Meals-on-Wheels program.

Our staff and volunteers work diligently to bring nutritious meals straight to the homes of Israel’s poor and needy. However, our work does not end there. We deliver basic necessities as well, such as medication, furniture and even make repairs around the house.

Most importantly, the Meals-on-Wheels program “Brightens the Faces” of our homebound, destitute and elderly Jewish friends. We not only see to their physical wellbeing. Our staff and volunteers work hard to ensure that their emotional needs are looked after as well. And that makes all the difference.

EMOTIONAL WELLBEING

Our volunteer’s warm smiles and bright faces give the homebound a vital connection to the outside world. For some, our Meals-on-Wheels deliveries are the only break from the loneliness they would otherwise suffer from each day.

Groceries

Meir Panim’s incredible volunteers work day and night to deliver quality food for Israel’s homebound poor and elderly. We do not just deliver meals, we provide dignity by bringing fresh groceries and ingredients so that our recipients can cook for themselves.

Physical Health

Because of their regular contact with the elderly and homebound, our volunteers are able to keep a watchful eye on our homebound friends. Meir Panim’s staff and volunteers are able to report on any illness or request a social worker or medical personal follow up as needed.

Security

Life during COVID-19 is difficult for the most healthy and vibrant. With the assistance we provide through Meals-on-Wheels, Israel’s most vulnerable citizens are assured that, despite what is going on outside, they can remain safe and well fed, at home.
