Leket Israel has launched the National Harvest Grant program in partnership with Bank Leumi, Keshet, and the National Union of Israeli Students. The initiative aims to support farmers facing labor shortages and the impact of the conflict in Gaza on their fields. Participating students commit to volunteering for 160 hours on the farms and can receive grants of up to NIS 10,000 from Bank Leumi. Leket will match student volunteers with farmers in need of assistance. The agricultural sector in Southern Israel has been severely impacted by the conflict, with a shortage of labor and threats to farmlands. Leket has mobilized thousands of volunteers to support farmers and salvage food from the embattled regions.
