Austria, July 2021

Volunteers from Know Thyself as Soul Vienna have been regularly preparing dinner at least once a month since August 2020 for people in need at the VinziPort, an emergency shelter for EU citizens.

Since then, we have cooked dinner for about 300 people. In the past, we purchased all the ingredients. Now the management team of the VinziPort asks us to process the food and vegetables already available. Our cooking project is also supported by companies with food products, such as soy and seitan.

The work in the kitchen runs smoothly because we almost feel at home there. A family atmosphere has emerged.

We occasionally get visits from shelter residents because they enjoy talking to us, of course in compliance with safety and health regulations.

It is always an uplifting feeling to take part in this project.
