Make a Soldier Smile

Boost morale and put a smile on IDF soldiers face

Our mission, as part of the IDF’s Volunteer Unit and at the direction of the IDF’s Food Division, is to provide IDF front line and elite units with fresh, nutritious meals as a special “treat” to thank the troops for their service.  Our teams travel from base to base with one of our mobile kitchens, where they prepare and serve falafel, burgers, schnitzels and salads to the troops.

But more than that – you meet and mingle with the soldiers one on one, hear their stories, get to know them and build bonds of friendship with these brave young men and women
