Leket Israel / JOSEPH GITLER

In 2003 Joseph Gitler founded Leket Israel. He started rescuing meals from catering halls and corporate cafeterias out of his Subaru car. The meals were stored in refrigerators lining his driveway before being delivered to local nonprofit organizations serving the needy.

Today Leket is the largest food bank in Israel, and has been a leader and an expert in food rescue nationwide. Leket works with 195 non-profits throughout the country to provide nutritious food to over 175,000 Israelis weekly. Last year alone, Leket collected and delivered over 30 million pounds of fresh, healthy food for people living in poverty.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
