We want to keep this up,“ says Tim Schuster. "The" is the "Ada-canteen": From 11. July in Bockenheim up to five times a week for lunch for about 80 people. For those who would otherwise have no money for a warm meal and all other food in a diverse socio-cultural place and a moderate, solidarity price to pay.

In the canteen of the former Academy of the work, hence the Name Ada, the Gräfstraße, on the corner of Merton road, growing with little money and a lot of enthusiasm for a project, this also has to do with Corona to. The "Ada-canteen" is operated by volunteers who cook, serve and clean in and outside, around the building, with the waste disposal companies donated Humus, a community garden, which later became the kitchen supply to.
The original idea, says Tim Schuster, Chairman of the Association had an Open house of the cultures of Bockenheim, have Anette Mönich from the district office of Bockenheim. Meanwhile, a network of different initiatives, the politically, culturally, and for refugees to engage for the project, forming cooking groups and will be on the weekend in a knee-jerk action, the new Logo and new colors on the walls. After a first call, the first Post in the social media, the first 20 helpers came immediately: "That blew me away yet," says Schuster, "there is a very large willingness to be involved and to be in solidarity".
more and more people have found the initiators, suffer from Hunger, or can't afford a decent meal any more. The homeless and drug addicts, but also quite normal families which have been hit by the pandemic a hard time because of unemployment or short-time working already scarce family budget stretch to the end of the month. "The differences are not as clear," says Schuster. And that some of the professional chefs in the squeaky clean re-renovated Ada-kitchen work, is due to the fact that Corona has destroyed many catering Jobs. "We've had reports of the boards that more people are coming, but Volunteers are missing, due to Corona," explains Schuster.Date Of Update: 03 July 2020, 09:20
