For today’s volunteering, I decided to a little more physical work and went to Leket Israel, which is part of the National Food Bank, to pick onions. Leket Israel is a non-profit organization that takes food that would either be thrown away or destroyed and gives it to the needy. The particular farm that we went to was owned by a lawyer from the states who was appalled to see so much food go to waste. He donated the farm on the condition that it constantly be kept up. Through the work of volunteers, people come everyday to pick a variety of foods from this farm. On this particular day, we picked onions. Besides the fact that I smelled like onions and got a fantastic sunglasses tan, I had a really good time. We were able to pick a TON, and actual TON, of onions in one afternoon! It was crazy. And the onions were DELICIOUS. If you would like to find out more about Leket Israel, click HERE!
