Unfortunately, the Novel Coronavirus still has a firm grip on the whole world. Governments have imposed curfews and contact bans, and for weeks now, many have been forced to stay home to work. It seems that the whole world is at a standstill.
As with all crises, the Corona crisis affects people from socially deprived backgrounds hardest. The fear of contagion torments them daily with questions like: Will I still have enough to eat tomorrow? How do I provide enough to eat for my children?
“El Puchero” – a hot meal every day
Since 2013, we have been cooking for needy people in our soup kitchen “El Puchero” in cooperation with the non-profit organization Coordinadora Solidaria in Valencia. In 2018, we opened another soup kitchen together in the port area of Valencia – “El Puchero Portuario“. Normally 400 people visit our soup kitchens every day to pick up a warm, freshly cooked meal. But because of the curfew imposed in Spain, this was no longer possible. Our kitchens had to close.
