At the Passover Seder we proclaim, "All who are hungry, come and eat; all who are needy, come and celebrate Passover!"
The sad reality is that is Israel, 2 out of every 5 children go to bed hungry. This Passover, Say No to Hunger and Say Yes. We kindly ask you to help Meir Panim fulfill its mission of providing a feeling of freedom from poverty, hunger, and loneliness to Israel’s neediest individuals.
After visiting the Meir Panim Restaurant-Style-Soup Kitchen in Jerusalem, Knesset Member and Former US Ambassador Michael Oren announced: “Meir Panim represents the best of what this country is and represents the essence of the Jewish State of Zionism and everything we stand for.”

When you look into the face of a child suffering from malnourishment, it’s impossible to know his or her pain. Today, two out of every five children in Israel go to bed hungry. Their growth is hindered without access to food containing sufficient vitamins and minerals. Many don’t attend school because of exhaustion or illness. And if they do, they often cannot concentrate.
These children are Israel’s future. This Passover, say YES.

According to the Israel National Insurance Institute’s latest report, 21.2% of the Israeli population lives in poverty. 29.6% of Israeli children are living in poverty. 2 out of every 5 children are victims of Israel’s economic crisis.
That is where Meir Panim steps in: alleviating the harmful effects of poverty on thousands of families across Israel by supporting a wide range of food and social service programs aimed at helping needy people with dignity and respect.
