Initiative: Send Potatoes to Gaza


5,000 tons of potatoes have been slated for destruction, Baskin notes.

To counter this wastefulness, he is attempting to raise $730,000 to cover the costs of the destruction and instead transfer the potatoes to Gaza - where one kilo of potatoes costs 2-3 shekel (75 cents) instead of the 50 agurot (half-shekel; 15 cents) they would be sold for in Israel.
