Message:  Hi,

I live in Israel and frequently drive through checkpoints manned by Israel soldiers. I like to give them some food whenever I pass through, a rather small token of thanks. I was wondering if this is allowed as I am certain that some of them will not wash or make the proper blessings before enjoying the food. Am I allowed to do what I do or not?
Thank you for your valuable time

Reply:  Tell them to make a blessing. You'll be surprised.
