Food, clothing and caring.

We started as a few friends who came together and made some soup and sandwiches on a November night in 2013 and headed towards the Park Ciutadella.

Since then we have expanded and cover two routes, twice a week. We are always looking for new volunteers to cook or to walk with us. Join us!

What can you do to help?

We need help making, collecting and distributing the food and collecting items of clothing, especially socks and sleeping bags. Find out below how you can help us.

Join the walk or host

We go out every Saturday and Sunday evening for an hour or two covering two routes, lead by an accustomed volunteer. The routes leave from our local in Carrer de l’Arc de Sant Silvestre 4, local A.

The host is responsible for getting the keys to open the local, heating up the soup, waiting for walkers to arrive, and cleaning up after the walk has been completed.

Provide food

We welcome volunteers who can contribute by preparing sandwiches and soup. Get creative with your sandwich-making and choose between tuna and cheese ! We also need donations of fruit juices, hard-boiled eggs, madeleines, fresh fruits to accompany the meals.

Support with donations

Donations of clothing and footwear, that are clean, in good condition and practical, are very welcome.

We now are also able to accept financial donations by card via our Donorbox or by Paypal, Bizum or bank account. See more info here.

Where. What. How?

Usually between 90 mins and 2 hours. The two routes are: Parc de la Ciutadella, the surrounding area and over towards the Estación del Norte, and Raval and Poble Sec.

We start from our local in Ciutat Vella, Carrer de l’Arc de Sant Silvestre 4. Volunteers will receive a WhatsApp message on the day of the walk with necessary details. Please add your phone number on the spreadsheet when you sign up.

The volunteers distribute cheese sandwiches, tuna sandwiches, soup (vegetarian), hard-boiled eggs, fruit juices, fresh fruits and madeleines/cookies during the walk. We feed around 150 people.
