Rescuing food that would otherwise go to waste

Pesia's Community Hubs

Limited space restricts Israeli food relief efforts. Pesia's Tel Aviv hubs bridge the gap, offering large-scale temperature-controlled storage and distribution. Pesia's Kitchen empowers small Israeli food banks by operating its three Community Hubs. These hubs handle large deliveries and collaborate with Leket Israel, maximizing food rescue and distribution.
