Antaes works alongside Incontro Zürich
The members of Antaes Zurich participated in the distribution of meals and in the marauding of the Incontro association in the streets of the city. This 1st action took place at the end of September, and is part of a long-term partnership with the association. This kind of participation will be renewed in the coming months according to the needs of volunteers.
As a first step, they helped set up food stalls for a first service in the Langstrasse district of Zurich at 5.30 p.m. A distribution of hot meals was held for more than sixty people of all ages and backgrounds.
Then, Globus, Incontro partner, delivered its unsold items of the day to the association, which allowed a second distribution of food of all kinds; prepared meals, fruits, vegetables, bread, etc. About 100 people attended this second service and were able to benefit from fresh food.
Finally, our colleagues as well as a member of the association put together a cart with the various unsold products from Globus in order to make a mobile distribution on Langstrasse, to people who could not come to the collection point (in particular prostitutes, in a very precarious situation). Following this last service, their volunteering ended around 9 p.m.
