Our goal is to ensure the basic human needs to any needy person, and we carry out our mission by
establishing and operating the following institutions:
3 Soup Kitchens, supplying 2500 hot tasty nutritious meals per day at our various venues:
soup-kitchens, shelters for the homeless, and 20 “Kadima” Youth Centers for children and youth at risk
At Lasova restaurants, every person may eat as much as he or she desires. We serve all people free of charge, with no questions asked, no criteria for admission, and no referrals or paperwork
Most of the food served at our restaurants is donated by the IDF, food manufacturers, restaurants and other food-serving venues. We collect the food with our “City Harvest" vehicles, operated by volunteers
20 "Kadima" Youth Centers, accommodating 1,000 children at risk of needy families, in various poor neighborhoods all over Israel.
Our goal is to promote and nurture children and teenagers at risk from disadvantaged families, prevent their dropping of school, and ensure their integration in the future into the normative society and not into its dangerous margins
In our "Kadima" Youth Centers we supply the participating children with hot meals, assistance in homework preparation, enrichment courses and daily lesson for values, such as Heritage, Tradition, History, Environment, and Friendship etc.
The staff in each of our youth center consists of one manager, on a full time and five volunteers in their National Service Duty, or Voluntary Service from the Kibbutz Movement
6 "Gagon" Homeless Shelters, provide all homeless people the following free services:
A clean bed, full board meals, suitable clothes, hot shower, medical care, as well as rehabilitation care provided by a municipal social worker
Approximately 110 homeless individuals currently reside at Gagon shelters. Our shelters are the only shelters in Israel.
Lasova Card – magnetic card enabling needy people to receive food products in the supermarkets for the amount of NIS 250 per month, ensuring proper nutrition and preventing mal-nutrition.
"City Harvest" Vehicles for collection of food surplus.
"Egged-Begged" a Bus for distribution of 2nd hand garments all over the country.
Cell-Lasova Cellular packages for needy people who due to their financial situation do not have a credit card and therefore they are not able to purchase cellular packages through the regular channels
