The Tzefat branch manager of Meir Panim, Benny Elgad was approached by the welfare ministry to help distribute meals to the homebound people of Tzefat. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, more people than ever are homebound and not able to go out to get food. Since Meir Panim has been delivering food to needy people already for a long time, Meir Panim was chosen as the community partner to deliver the meals.
In solidarity, the mayor of Tzefat, Shuka Ohana, visited the Meir Panim center to see for himself the work that is done by Meir Panim. Not only did he visit the center and met with the people for whom delivering meals is a daily routine. He also put his own gloves and face mask on and went door to door to deliver the meals to the people who are homebound due to the virus.
