Eat at a participating kosher restaurant on May 1st and 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the American Friends of Meir Panim, a poverty relief organization in Israel.
On Tuesday May 1st, 2012, restaurants across the U.S. and Canada will join together in donating 10% of their gross revenue to American Friends of Meir Panim. AFMP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting programs in Israel that provide daily hot, nourishing meals and social services to thousands of children and adults across Israel and from all backgrounds including Holocaust survivors, victims of terror, and new immigrants.
This innovative project is now in its eighth year. Initiated by students of Yeshivat Rambam of Baltimore, it is now spearheaded by students of Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School. Students across North America are collaborating in this effort. Through their dedication the program has grown from a local initiative to an international success… With your help this year will be the best yet!
This is a fantastic opportunity to help support both your fellow Jews in Israel and your local kosher restaurants, all while simply eating out! Grab a bagel for breakfast. Order in at the office. Take your family to a delicious dinner and know that you are helping Meir Panim feed the hungry.
Every participant makes a difference. Please take part and wear your “I ate for Israel” sticker with pride!
