Esperança Barcelona



Where. What. How?

30 sandwiches need to be made for each route. Usually, 4/5 from each baguette, depending on the size of the baguette. They need to be individually wrapped in foil or cling film. If you want to make sandwiches but don’t think you can do 30, please message us anyway!

No, but they are a good guideline.

We are feeding people from many different backgrounds and ethnicities so we do not want to prohibit anyone from being able to enjoy our food due to religious beliefs. Vegetables are a healthy option.

Meeting times change with the sunset – in winter this means as early as 18:00 to go out at 18:30, while in the summer we meet as late as 21:00 in order to go out at 21:30.

We meet to leave each week from our base located in El Raval at Carrer d’En Roig 30, 1-1A. Volunteers will receive a private message on the day of the run with necessary details, including time, address and phone number.

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 (link to map), and Raval and Poble Sec (link to map)

We have money available if you can spare the time.

We absolutely must not give out any medication. You can refer to the information following this link (link to emergency information) to places our homeless friends can go to receive medical/dental help.

It is best that you dress appropriately and wear footwear for a 5 km walk. Please leave any valuables at home.

It is important to understand that once you have committed to going on a run, we are relying on you. If you cannot attend for any reason please let the organizer know as soon as possible and find a replacement volunteer.

We need a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 walkers for each route. Please make sure everyone who is going out has their full name on the google doc (link).

It is not necessary to be able to speak Spanish but it helps.

We take out 7 liters of vegetarian soup (soup recipes) 30 cheese bocadillos (recipes) and 30 tuna bocadillos (recipes) for each route plus fruit, chocolate/biscuits/magdalenas, small cartons of juice or bottles of water for about 50 people. The food needs to be dropped off at the agreed meeting point (link to host house) within the route we are covering.

Soup is best transported cold in large empty water bottles. Make it thick so that there is less weight to carry. It can be heated up at the host apartment (adding water to make it easy to drink from cups) and transferred to flasks to distribute. Bocadillos need to be individually wrapped in foil or plastic wrap.
