Our first and main activity we started with was providing free lunches to refugees.
At the border, we were one of the first to prepare nutritious and hot lunches for Ukrainians who came to Poland. We understood that for refugees it was more than just a nutritious meal – it was a show of support.
The Ukrainians had a very long drive, some driving for several days, so they were in great need of lunches and hot drinks on cold days.
We provided and continue to provide food rich in carbohydrates and healthy fats so that it is also suitable for children. We use gentle cooking techniques to prepare lunches, such as steaming, cooking, baking, and frying with a minimum amount of oil. We add vegetables to each serving and give fruit for the children. We are careful to follow all sanitary rules and regulations and comply with them.
Since the first days of the war, we have already given out 260,000 meals and are continuing to do so.
Our main kitchen in Katowice is staffed by women from Ukraine, who were also forced to flee from the war and are now preparing lunches for their homelanders. We deliver lunches to various locations in Katowice and Krakow, where they are then given to Ukrainians.
