Despite concerns over growing poverty and hunger from Israel’s COVID-19 lockdowns over the past year, raw materials and transport are expected to increase further. This means that manufacturers will have no choice but to up the price of goods according to a recent Israeli media report.
It is unclear if and when Israel will tackle economic measures geared towards scaling back the nation’s debt. However, it seems as though an increase in food prices is around the corner and is expected within the next several months.
Senior executives in the food industry said that it is probable that prices will increase by the second half of 2021, if not sooner. The reason is that as prices of food and commodities varied with no clear direction over the past five years, last year’s trend has shown a decisive increase.
The anticipated price increase couldn’t have come at a worse time. Record high unemployment has devastated Israel’s economy and the combination of increased inflation with increased joblessness is a recipe for mass poverty.
Fortunately, the organization Meir Panim has stepped up to ensure that no one in Israel goes hungry. Since the start of the pandemic, it has tripled its output of daily meals to meet the growing demand of people in need of its services and intends to do so for as long as it takes regardless of the challenges that come its way.
However, the reality is that as the cost of food is expected to rise, so will Meir Panim’s budgetary needs. That’s why this vital organization is now appealing to friends from around the world who want to bless Israel.
Meir Panim relies on the generosity of people like you to prevent poverty and hunger from becoming the next epidemic to hit Israel.
