The “Koken in een andere keuken” (cooking in another kitchen) is a project which started in 2010. It is a collaboration bertween the organisations ‘Amsterdamverbindt’ and ‘De Stoelen Project’.
The goal of the project is that a group of 4 to 5 volunteers spend an afternoon in a homeless shelter and prepare a tasty and healthy meal for about 45 homeless people. The project aspires to bring people together to roll up their sleeves for a great cause: Cooking for people in Amsterdam who don’t have a roof over there head.
The cooking takes place at “De Stoelenproject”, a homeless shelter which offers emergency shelter to 45 people. The homeless shelter is located at the Marnixstraat in Amsterdam, and is open from the 1 st of octobre until the 1st of may.
In the past four years, more than 350 groups cooked a meal for over 17.000 homeless persons.
