Yad Aharon & Michael is Johannesburg’s largest Jewish Food Fund - a registered non-profit organisation. Since its inception in the early 90’s, the organisation has ensured that every needy Jewish person brought to their attention is afforded the basic right to a nutritionally balanced, fresh produce food parcel on a weekly basis. ‘Yad’s Bayit’ is home away from home, as recipients are provided not only with physical sustenance, but also with spiritual and emotional support, as “It’s the heart of Yaddies that feeds the soul”.
