Michigan Israel Business Accelerator (MIBA) staff spent the afternoon volunteering and team building in the gardens at Yad Ezra. Hebrew for helping hand, Yad Ezra opened its doors in 1990 in response to the impoverished Jews living in southeast Michigan who relied heavily on government assistance programs.
Currently, Yad Ezra provides food to an average of 1,200 impoverished families, totaling almost 2,500 individuals, every month. Their food selection includes an abundance of kosher items and fresh produce from their gardens.
The MIBA staff were grateful for the opportunity to support this meaningful cause in their community. In addition to the MIBA staff learning about Yad Ezra’s complex operations and how they adapted to the challenges of the Pandemic, they helped tend to the newly expanded vegetable gardens by weeding and installing irrigation.
