The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2020


Gidi Kroch

CEO, Leket Israel

2020 was a sharply challenging year for Gidi Kroch, CEO of Israel’s national food bank Leket Israel. Since the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis, Leket Israel has distributed 60 percent more fruit and vegetables and 50 percent more hot meals than the period before due to increased demand. More than 31 local authorities turned to Leket to distribute food to those in need. “Sadly, many of those we supported were never on our radar beforehand,” Kroch explained in an interview over the summer. “They are people who worked hard and earned a living until they were thrown into unprecedented economic hardship.” (Photo: courtesy)
