Pantry Packers® is the volunteer food packaging and distribution arm of Colel Chabad, the oldest continuously operating network of social services in Israel – established in 1788.Every month Pantry Packers hosts hundreds of volunteers of all ages from around the world in their Jerusalem facility to pack, seal, label and box tens of thousands of bags of rice, beans, peas and other dry goods to be included in the home delivered crates of food and supplies for Israel’s poorest families and senior citizens.

Families and groups coming to Israel for a vacation or special occasion are welcomed to Pantry Packers and appreciate being able to ‘give back’ to those less fortunate in a fun and meaningful experience enjoyed by all ages. Every recipient of a Colel Chabad/Pantry Packer box of goods is screened and selected on a non-discriminatory basis by the social services departments of local municipalities without regard to gender, ethnic background, or degree of religious observance.
