How can I volunteer ?

You have to sign up on our spreadsheet . You will see on the spreadsheet which kind of food is needed for each day and what role has to be taken (walker, host…) please put your name and your phone number. Our route leader will contact you the day of the walk.

You can either join us for homeless assistance to provide food ( we provide homemade soup and sandwiches, hard-boiled eggs, fresh fruits, fruit juices and madeleines or cookies) or come to distribute it with us. You also can donate specific clothes or money.

Currently we meet between 17h and 17h45 to go to walk and help our friends in sthe streets at 18h.

Usually between 90 mins and 2 hours. The two routes are: Parc de la Ciutadella, , and Raval and Poble Sec

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.

Each route is composed of a route leader (a volunteer used to walk and who knows the route) + 4 volunteers.

Each route take out two times 6 liters of soup, 25 cheese sandwiches, 25 tuna sandwiches , 40 biscuits, 36 fruit juices, 40 fresh fruits and 36 hard-boiled eggs. The food needs to be dropped off at the local Carrer de l’Arc de Sant Silvestre, 4.

Soup is best transported cold in large water bottles. The host heat it up and put it in thermos before the start of the walk. Sandwiches need to be individually wrapped in foil or plastic wrap.
