Our action during the year
Every Tuesday throughout the year we distribute hot meals in the corridors of the Botanique metro station from November to April, and sandwiches on the footpath behind the Central Station from May to October.
Every Tuesday morning, drivers take our van to collect food from our generous donors. The caterer “Choux de Bruxelles” provides us with 40 litres of soup and Danone, in Rotselaar, gives us a large quantity of dairy products every week.
In the evening we also receive bread, pastries and cakes from the “Den Atelier” bakery in Overijse. The van goes to the distribution point in the evening, where many poor people are waiting for us impatiently.
The tasks are divided among volunteers and depending on the season, some serve soup, others distribute hot meals or sandwiches, bread, coffee, cakes and pastries.
Volunteers take advantage of the opportunity to chat with the poor people, to get to know their situations. We also distribute blankets and sleeping bags if necessary.
