The Yad Aharon & Michael Tzedokah Food Fund
Weekly Food Box
Each food hamper contains carefully thought out, nutritious and balanced foods which recipients either collect or have delivered on a weekly basis. The parcels contain a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, potatoes, fresh bread, a protein of the week and eggs.
We are completely reliant on community funding and as a result the organization is run, as far as possible, by volunteers. These amazing people selflessly give of their time week-in and week-out in order to ensure that the food parcels are ready in time for delivery each week.
The Can Can Project
Out of our recipients’ increasing need for non-perishable items such as canned goods, rice, cereals, sugar, tea & coffee, was born the idea of "The Can Can Project”. This initiative has enabled us to make our dream of establishing a free mini “Supermarket” where our recipients can obtain “emergency supplies” a reality.
