2. Leftovers to soup kitchen or order extra menus
Winter is cold and many homeless people are struggling more than ever. Therefore, why not donate leftovers from weddings, christmas party or even birthdays, to organizations like Chiringuito de Dios. At the same time,
when you know your final number of guests, you can order extra menus and donate
them to similar organizations as mentioned above. The monetary worth of the menu will be used on produce that lasts longer like lentils, flour or rice.
3. Bake and help
A good way to also involve children is baking! Together with the children you have a
wonderful day baking and decorating many different cookies. After that you can go
together to local hospitals, old people’s homes or refugee homes and give the
homemade biscuits to your fellow human beings. Children learn about charity and you bring a smile to the face of others.

Tours. Ex-homless people show their Barcelona the way they got to know it. Why not
discover Barcelona in such a way and leave a positive impression? There is the
possibility to end the whole tour with a delicious tapas meal at Chiringuito de Dios. The perfect group event or present!
