Food and Drink

Three meals per working day are provided. The dining hall does not serve pork or shellfish, but it does not have a certificate of kashrut. Vegetarian offerings are always available. Please let us know if you are vegetarian or have other dietary concerns so we can be sure the right amount of vegetarian servings are available. Israel’s tap water is safe and potable, but many people purchase bottled water which is readily available everywhere. Team Members are responsible for providing their own early morning snack before heading to work. Coffee, tea, bread, biscuits etc. can be purchased at the kibbutz store and we will show you a communal eating lounge for this purpose.

In addition to the dining hall, our team will have access to an eating lounge with communal facilities for light food preparation (sink, fridge, microwave, kettle, etc.). There are also many pleasant outdoor seating areas for snacking.

Breakfast is provided every work day—Sunday to Thursday. It is a dairy buffet bar (eggs, sandwiches, vegetables, yogurt, cereal, fruit) and will be taken at the site.

Lunch is also provided every work day—Sunday to Thursday. It is a meat meal and is the main daily meal. A typical lunch meal is chicken, hot vegetables like green beans, corn, or carrots, potatoes or rice, bread, and cold salads (cabbage, cucumber & tomato, humus, etc.).

Dinner is provided five days a week—Saturday night to Wednesday night. It is a lighter meal than lunch, for example soups, salads, cold meats, etc. 

Alcoholic beverages are permitted on the premises. We remind all participants that team members are expected to take care of their physical well-being to the best of their ability—this means staying well hydrated and not drinking alcohol such that it impairs the ability to work. Please also note that smoking is prohibited in all of the buildings on the site and is only allowed in designated outdoor spaces. To our smoking friends we request that you take care to not leave behind cigarette butts anywhere on the grounds and only use proper disposal containers.
