Since 2016 we have had a soup kitchen where we provide food and sanitary products to vulnerable people and families who need them 7 days a week.
We have a kitchen where we elaborate equilibrated and dietetic menus. A group of trained volunteers cooks and distribute the food. The pandemic has forced us to close the canteen service and to offer individual or family food bags.
With the current crisis, we have gone from serving 200 meals to peaks of 1,900 meals a day. The current average is 1.200 meals a day.
All this is possible thanks to the generosity and collaboration of individual people, associations and companies that provide us with food and hygiene products.

FOOD BANK & FAMILY CARE CENTRE
Since March 2020, due to the increase in social demand from families in a situation of social exclusion caused by this health and economic crisis, we have set up a center where we provide food and specific products for babies, children and hygiene 3 days a week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday in coordination with social services.
At the moment, and increasing every day, we attend up to 230 families, that involves around 900 people and wich 220 are kinds under the age of 12.
We archive all these thanks to the collaboration and support from multiple partners and organizations. Without wishing to be exhaustive, we would like to highlight the following:

This center has space for 65 people, but there is the option of expanding to get up to 80 people. As Inge, it has rooms, bathrooms, showers, laundry and a recreation room. One of the new features of this place is that it complies with the new Covid-19 regulations, so it has air renewal systems for its prevention.
On top of the services we have measured before, it includes all the meals of the day: breakfast, snacks, lunch and supper. It is all free in our dining room Tardor.
For getting a place the users must be 0,0. So 0 alcohol and 0 drugs and, also, we ask for cleanliness and good treatment. The centre has no employees. It is managed by 6 trained volunteers who, in exchange for a decent place to live, are responsible for the smooth running of the Llar.
Study of new llar in the Polígono de Son Castelló:
Without being able to be precise until the engineer’s project is available, we think that we could place about 200 beds (100 rooms with two beds and individual bathrooms). It has the perfect characteristics for single-parent families and self-sufficient seniors, as well as a cooking school.
It would have 3 different areas very well defined.
1. Bedrooms areas and recreation rooms for families.
2. Areas for sociocultural activities for senior people.
3. Area of Cooking School which will include multi-purpose training rooms where we will teach different modalities.
4. Social canteen to attend to all the needs of the people in the shelter, as well as people in the neighbouring area who suffer from poverty and social exclusion.
This center will have the same philosophy as the other ones. It will be managed by 20 trained people who will be volunteers, in exchange of a decent place to be they will be responsible for running smoothly the Llar.
It will also be financially self-sufficient due to the fact that only with the places that public institutions would hire for place people they care for, the rent of the premises, supplies and maintenance costs are paid.
In terms of the Cooking School, it will be coordinated byASCAIB (asociación de cocineros afincados en las Islas Baleares) and designed by Koldo Royo, who is already versed in and investigating the management of subsidies in order to provide the necessary elements for their good deto.
