Leket Israel's Nutrition for Life: Empowering Mothers Project was recently selected as 1 of 7 projects to receive funding from the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle's Women's Endowment. The project offers workshops and training to young at-risk and single mothers to the benefits of healthy eating habits and proper nutrition on a limited budget. Competitive grants from the Endowment fund are focused on programming that improves the lives of women and girls in Western Washington and Israel.
"We are very pleased to make these grants that support the needs of women and girls in the Jewish community," said Dan Lowen, Chair of the Special Initiative Fund that oversees the Women's Endowment Fund. "Our community understands that the health and safety of women and girls is key to sustaining a healthy, vibrant Jewish community. The needs are great, and these grants will support vital programs both locally and in Israel."
The Women's Endowment Fund was created by women from the Seattle Jewish community who recognized the unique needs of women and girls and wanted to ensure funding was available for programs locally and in Israel that would enhance their lives. Grants are made from a portion of the fund each year based on a detailed evaluation process conducted by the Special Initiatives Fund Committee of the Jewish Federation.
