There aren't many things that are nobler then feeding those that have a hard time doing it on their own. Yad Ezra does it with respect to dignity, while preserving the age long culture and tradition of Kashrut. It achieves it by mobilizing the community in support of such an honorable cause though giving and volunteer participation second to none. For twenty years we have consistently increased the level and amount of support to those in need, while improving our own fiscal stability and operational efficiency.

As a former board member who has served on many non profit boards I can attest that Yad Ezra is probably the most financially efficienct, caring and most considerate of it's clientel's needs and dignaty of any organization I have ever had the pleasure of serving on. From it's staff (very few) to it's multitude of volinteers (many).

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

extremely considerate and sensitive

Their mission is simple: To feed the hungry. Their effectiveness is second to none. The organization is run by amazing professionals and a dedicated board. All of which focus completely altruistically on feeding the hungry in the metropolitan Detroit community ... a community that is unfortunately growing. Without Yad Ezra, Detroit would be a different place.

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

feed all of the hungry in metropolitan Detroit with dignity and change the attitude towards hunger.
