You’re invited to take to the streets of Kraków with meals for the homeless, street performers, leaflet distributors, and all who seem to need a “pick me up”. We will come together to pack the meals and drinks and then hand out the meals. However this isn’t just about giving a meal to someone, it’s listening to people’s stories, if they choose to share. It’s about learning their name and story. The idea is to make this a regular event and get to know the homeless community, so that we can invite them to our next dignity dinner (Summer 2017, date to be determined). We will provide some sample conversation starters and questions to help us connect with the people we meet.
What: Meals for 30+ people
When: July 3, meeting starts at 4 PM, we go to the streets around 4:30 PM
How: If possible, please bring some fruit mousse, water, juice in smaller bottles/cartons (preferably containing vitamins) or candy bars. Should you be willing to buy something towards the event, please indicate on the signup form below what you are willing to bring.
Where: The benches of Planty in front of the Columbus Coffee Café garden, off Szewska Street (map). Handing out street snacks – Planty and the Old Town
Ends: When we’ve given away all the meals (roughly 90 minutes) but we would love to have a moment with you at the Columbus Coffee Café afterwards[K2] at around 6:00 PM.
Non Polish speakers will be teamed up with Polish speakers so all are welcomed to come and help!
