Food with love

Donation protected
My name is Ayelet Zahavi.
Six years ago, together with my twin sister Hila Yeshayahu, I opened a small family restaurant, Haloheshet Lasirim - the Pot Whisperer,- in Kibbutz Einat with Home Cooking by a team of Jewish and Arab women, mothers… a small intimate place which feels like home.

After we heard the terrible news on Saturday morning October 7th,
We understood that amidst the chaos and confusion, our food could help many people…
We understood that we needed to start baking, cooking and sending food to the soldiers, to families in need who lost their homes, to families who lost their loved ones, and to the injured in the hospitals.

We closed the restaurant to guests and focused on volunteering and donating food.
Our beloved team of women immediately joined us. ...... friends, neighbors, and family members stopped their work and everyday lives and started working with us as volunteers.

The nightmare we are facing is not over. Every day the number of requests increases. We have become a center for distributing food as well as other items that are needed.

Today we are providing almost 1,000 meals a day.
The cost of providing 1,000 meals is $10,000.

We were supported by local donations and now we need your help.
Every amount you contribute is deeply appreciated.

Thanking you in advance,
Ayelet Zahavi
Haloheshet Lasirim
