Come and Pack
Schedule a visit to pack food that will be distributed to Israeli families in need of food help. This is a meaningful way to participate actively in charity and/or celebrate a life event.
Fill cartons with the basic foods hungry families need.
Where is the Pantry Packers volunteer center located?
We are off Derech Moshe Baram in Talpiot, Jerusalem
How do we get to the volunteer center?
If you are coming from the center of town take Derech Chevron South. Make a right on HaUman St. At the second light the street will change into Derech Moshe Baram. 150 meters AFTER the intersection make a left and follow the road to the left where you will see a sign for Pantry Packers.
Using ‘Waze’ or ‘Google Maps’ search (in English) for “Pantry Packers”.
It will take you straight to the warehouse.
Is there parking?
Ample parking is available right in front of our center.
What do I tell the taxi driver?
We are adjacent to Yeshivat Itri (next to the kitchen). You will see a big Pantry Packers welcome sign at the entrance.
Make sure he brings you to the warehouse. There is a welcome sign on top of the door.
