Summary

Deliver lunches to the elderly who are unable to prepare even one hot meal a day due to their deteriorating health and/or poor financial situation.

Detailed description

For more than 5 years, every workday, our volunteers have been delivering lunches to the elderly in Bratislava. 


More than 120 households benefit from this project, and, in many cases, we are the only company the elderly have.


Meals on wheels are well organized and are delivered by our three volunteer car crews. Dedicated drivers meet volunteers at the Blue Church in Bratislava’s city center. The crews, each consisting of a driver and a volunteer, pick up pre-packed lunches consisting of a soup and a main dish (the elderly can choose from a variety of options), and then they distribute them to the beneficiaries’ doors, according to the daily schedule. All meals are of course accompanied with kind words and a smile from our devoted volunteers.


More than 25,000 lunches are delivered each year.
