Leket is an organization that collects surplus or leftover food all across Israel and donates it to the needy. In addition to collecting leftover food from caterers and restaurants, Leket works with landowners who donate the fruits and vegetables in their fields for collection.
Ramaz 8th grade students will be visiting one such field in Rechovot this Wednesday as they volunteer to pick whatever fruit or vegetables are in the field, which will then be collected and donated to the needy.
Leket came to Ramaz this week to introduce the chesed organization to the students. After viewing a short informational video about the organization, students designed tote bags that will be sent to families in Israel to collect their leftovers for donation.
