On the occasion of 12. German Tafel Day, the Tafel Hammelburg also invites people to an open house on Saturday, 29 September. September, to the open day in the Tafel building at the station 2 a. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., visitors can gain an insight into the work of the Tafel and obtain comprehensive information.
A look behind the scenes
Guests can take a look behind the scenes, ask questions about the Tafel’s work and gain an insight into the storage and refrigeration rooms and food distribution. In the course of the morning, drivers will deliver goods – as they do every Saturday – and helpers will check them and store them in the cold storage room. If there is interest, guided tours of the table take place. Chairman Dieter Roth and the volunteer helpers inform about what exactly will happen with the ca. 45 tons of food happens, which were collected and distributed in the course of a year by the helpers. Of course, there is also the question of who is entitled to receive goods from the food bank and under what conditions. The event is therefore also of interest to sponsors and donors, who can use this opportunity to make sure that their commitment is meaningful and necessary. In this way, the Tafel Hammelburg lives up to the goal of the German Tafel Day to set an example against food waste and poverty.
More helpers welcome
Women and men, young people and older people who can imagine doing voluntary work would also be very welcome, write those responsible for the Tafel. The tasks are varied, each helper decides for himself to what extent he wants to contribute and how. Guests can fortify themselves with coffee and homemade cake.
Every visitor takes part in a raffle in which, for example, a three-course meal for two at the Schloss Saaleck restaurant can be won, but every other raffle ticket is also a hit. And children are also catered for: they can release balloons into the sky and whoever wins one of the main prizes can then take to the skies themselves on a sightseeing flight with the air sports group or a tandem flight with a paraglider
