As the entire world is adjusting to the new reality of the coronavirus pandemic, Meir Panim has quickly pivoted in order to continue providing foods and other necessary items for our clients.
We have taken innovative steps to ensure that the new government limitations won’t leave anyone in Israel’s impoverished community without a warm meal.
For example, new government restrictions have banned gatherings of ten or more people in public spaces. So Meir Panim is responding by providing hot meals from their Restaurant-Style Soup Kitchens as takeaway meals. The takeout containers are prepared and are packed up for their clients to come and pick up their meals.
We have been asked by many local municipalities to add thousands over and above our usual patrons as Meals-on-Wheels recipients across Israel due to the coronavirus pandemic. Our Meals-on-Wheels program has become the exclusive free meal provider in many regions over Israel.
Therefore, our Meals-on-Wheels program has significantly expanded its meal delivery program to meet the growing demands of our patrons who are confined to their homes, individuals in quarantine, as well those citizens that are now unemployed or on furlough.
