HUNGRY KIDS LUNCH PROJECT
Many children in Sde’rot go to bed hungry, come to school without food, and return home hungry! Having heard of this sobering reality, we inquired of the local principals to confirm the situation, and find out how many students actually arrive daily without a lunch. Knowing how difficult it is for children to learn on an empty stomach, we decided to launch this special component of our ‘Save the Children Project’. With your help and generosity, we are aiming to provide 150-200 hungry children each day with nutritional sandwiches in seven local schools!
To make this possible, we must arise early each day to buy fresh rolls from the local bakery. Our staff and international volunteers then arrive to prepare these ‘gourmet sandwiches’ for the children, while enjoying hot coffee, laughter and the latest local news. An hour later, our old gru-ta-ah (junk car) named “Cleo-patra” chugs off into the sunrise in a cloud of smoke for deliveries to thankful school security-guards.
Upon completing the task, we are often reminded how ‘blessed’ we are to have food…and the privilege to bring this nutritional relief to so many precious Israeli children who suffer…simply because they live in Sde'rot. Their happy faces and full stomachs truly bless our hearts! Please pray for G-D’s help to continue this special children’s outreach due to our pressing war-front projects.

HUNGRY FAMILY FOOD PROJECTS
Our “Hungry Family” compassion program serves in coordination with other local humanitarian aid organizations to provide each week, critically needed portions of food for hundreds of struggling families who find themselves hopelessly consigned to live in this war front community.
Hundreds of boxes and/or sacks of fresh fruits, vegetables, and dry foods are distributed weekly to help these struggling individuals and families. Many are humbly encouraged, thanks to these expressions of G-D’s immense compassion, and your generous help!
CONTAINERS OF COMPASSION
Growing international concern and prayer have produced remarkable results. Our small outreach ministry has been blessed to import several massive containers of food into Israel, in order to develop emergency food projects to assist needy families during times of national crisis. Without funds, we have been delighted by the willingness of other respected organisations to help us distribute these massive quantities of foods throughout Israel, while preparing our small nation for crisis situations which may soon lie ahead.
In late 2010, we began partnering with ‘Gleanings For The Hungry’, a YWAM (Youth With a Mission) crisis-food supply ministry in Fresno, California. Since that time, several massive 40-foot containers of nutritional dried soup and fruits have been donated to help the many families suffering throughout Israel. This is Truly a Miracle!
Deeply moved by the situation, James and Delia Wilson founded ‘Containers of Compassion’ in Australia, then united with ‘The Associated Grain Growers’ and concerned friends to purchase their first ‘Miracle-Aussi Container’ of food for Israel. Within two months, the shipment was on the water, bearing 23.5 tons of costly Humus (Chick Peas) -- a very popular, high protein food source throughout Israel. Since then, they have enthusiastically raised the funds for another ‘Container’…this time loaded with 22-Tons of nutritional rice and lentils… and much-needed containers of diapers and baby products! “Baruch Ha-Shem” (Praise The L-RD)!
