| Food Donation Act Passes

The Knesset passed the Food Donation Act on Monday. The Food Donation Act, similar to the United States Bill Emerson Act, absolves food donors from criminal and civil liability, if they adhere to the food safety requirements by the Ministry of Health.

"1.8 million Israelis suffer from food insecurity while 2.3 million tons of food at a value of NIS 19.5 billion (5+ billion USD) is thrown away annually," Leket  CEO Gidi Kroch said. "The Food Donation Act opens the door to hundreds of organizations and businesses that have quality and substantial amounts of surplus food but do not currently donate out of fear from liability."
