A few weeks after Hadassah University Medical Center’s chief clinical dietitian
Dorit Adler bemoaned the lack of “food security” for many Israelis, supermarket
chain owner Rami Levy initiated the first-ever program to sell basic, healthy
foods at a low cost. Adler and Levy on Tuesday launched a cooperative effort to
mark down select nutritious foods, which Adler chose, so even the economically
disadvantaged could buy them. The foods will be available at all Shivuk Hashikma
Levy said his company plays a “social role” and he hoped other
retailers would follow suit.
The announcement was made at the fifth
Israel Medical Convention organized by the Hadassah Medical Organization at
Jerusalem’s International Convention Center in cooperation with the Bnei Zion
and Assaf Harofeh Medical Centers.
