Our Story

Since 2002, PizzaIDF has been at the forefront of bolstering private sector support through food gifts to the men and women of the Israel Defense Forces.                                                   

A Great Initiative Born Out of Tragedy

PizzaIDF was founded by Menachem Kuchar in 2002 as a local community initiative to raise food and other items for IDF soldiers during the Second Intifada. We trace our roots from the annual Mishloach Manot Project that Menachem initiated in the early 90's. Since then, PizzaIDF has been sending pizzas, falafels, barbecues, and other food items to active duty IDF soldiers across Israel with the help of private individuals and businesses. Our mission is to send food and love to the men and women working hard to protect the State of Israel.


Boosting Troop Morale Since 2002

Since then, Pizza IDF has been delivering pizzas and other treats to IDF soldiers, making sure that soldiers are kept in good company by the food offering of their fellow citizens and supporters. Over the years, we have added other tasty treats in our menu, mostly in line with events in the Jewish calendar: jelly donuts for Hanukkah, honey cake for Rosh HaShana, and, of course, Mishloah Manoth for Purim which we have been doing since the 90's.
