MetCouncil is both incredibly professional but also incrediby entrepreneurial. They seize new ideas and make things happen. As an example, they are soon to open kosher food restaurants for their needy clients. A few years ago, they started a kosher food distribution program and now provide ten's of thousands of food packages/month.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they do it first class

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly knowledganble and committed

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

cure hunger in the target population

MetCouncil is an amazing organization from the ground up. Leadership is dynamic, and only steps away from the on-the-ground team. The mission is felt through the entire organization, and everyone involved feels the passion.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

End Jewish poverty!
