Help us fight poverty in Israel
1.7 million Israelis live below the poverty line, equivalent to 22% of the total population, a figure we cannot live with. This is one of the highest poverty rates in the developed world and double the rate in the UK. This has to change and we can’t do it without your help.
Coronavirus Outbreak: an updateAs of May 27th, Israel permitted dining in for food centres – given very strict regulations on social distancing and hygiene procedures.
For us that means: one client per table, disposable silverware and trays, all volunteers and staff to wear masks at all time.
Due to these regulations, we will STILL be doing MOST of our meals take-out and meals on wheels, both for limited seating and for those in vulnerable age groups are still warned to be extra cautious.

Helping 1.7 Million Israelis under the poverty line
Manna is the UK Branch of Meir Panim, formerly known as Meir Panim UK. We have been operating since September 2008 and our main goal is to raise awareness and support for Meir Panim’s amazing work in Israel.
Meir Panim is on the front line of the daily battle against poverty and hunger in Israel, and we need your help to support them.
For the last decade, tens of thousands of disadvantaged men, women, and children – including Holocaust survivors – have turned to Meir Panim as their source of hope for a brighter future.
- Meir Panim is helping all Israelis irrespective of background.
- Over a third of Meir Panim donations comes from within Israel.
- We have over 1500 devoted volunteers nationwide.

You can put Challah on the tables of Israeli families this Shabbat, you can deliver a hot meal to a Holocaust survivor, you can provide a child’s lunch or you can buy a Food Shopping Card. These are only a few of the ways you can help.
