On this Page:

Pantry Packers Pantry Packers® introduces a bold new concept called Tikkun Olam Tourism® – an exciting 90 minute hands-on opportunity for overseas tourists to pack commodity food staples for Israel’s poorest families. This new venture in volunteer tourism in Jerusalem offers visiting groups, bar and bat-mitzvah parties, family groups, youth groups etc. the opportunity to make their contribution to Israeli society in a meaningful way.

At the Pantry Packers® production facility in Jerusalem, tourists aged 8-80 are given a brief orientation session that includes watching a short movie, before donning gloves, aprons and caps in order to fill bags of rice, beans and other commodities. These bags, which bear a sticker with the name of the packing group, will later be included in large food baskets destined for needy families throughout the country. All the recipient families have been identified by government agencies as needy.

Pantry Packers® is sponsored by Colel Chabad  – Israel’s oldest charity group. Colel Chabad offers a complete range of social services programs to help Israel’s neediest – including soup kitchens, widows and orphans aid, paediatric dental clinics, immigration absorption services, Multiple Sclerosis therapy, bar mitzvahs for orphans, and programs for hospitalized children.
Program participation – which is designed for groups and is free of charge - must be scheduled in advance.
