Free Restaurants - Soup Kitchens

Free Restaurants - Soup Kitchens
Dignified Dining

The foundation of Meir Panim's food services is its network of free restaurants in distressed cities throughout Israel. The free restaurants are Meir Panim's idea of soup kitchens. They are designed to look like restaurants which provide quality food in an exclusive dining setting to those in need. The purpose of this setting is to maintain Meir Panim's firm commitment to preserve the utmost respect and dignity of its patrons.

The free restaurants are designed to have the look and feel of a restaurant, with tasteful decor and ambiance. Daily menus are designed by a nutritionist to include all of the main food categories and vitamins that are vital for proper nutrition, which needy individuals can ill-afford. Diners also have the option of taking home packaged food to eat in the privacy of their own homes.

Giving with a full heart

The meals are served by volunteers who provide more that just a hot, nutritious meal - they offer a warm smile, a sympathetic ear, and a helping hand to our patrons.

A warm atmosphere

The atmosphere at the Meir Panim free restaurants is relaxed and warm. Over time, camaraderie develops and the restaurants become a "second home" for many of the patrons. Troubled diners open up to the caring volunteers who are always ready to listen, encourage, and assist in any way possible.

Meir Panim currently operates 7 free restaurants throughout Israel.

2,300 hot and nutritious meals are served in the free restaurants daily.
