Meals for the Homeless

October 18, 2021

UPDATE as of 12 November: The rising number of COVID cases and new restrictions mean that the Meals for the Homeless will NOT have a sitdown dinner on 12 November but will once again start preparing meals from home and distributing them in takeaway bags.

Article written on 18 October: Due to the coronavirus, the Meals for the Homeless team has prepared meals from home for more than 1-1/2 years and distributed them in takeaway bags. Beginning in November, guests will once again be invited indoors to sit down and eat warm meals. This means that from 12 November, the team will need extra help serving and cleaning up.

A big “THANK YOU” for the volunteers, who cooked over 4500 meals from their homes during the last 1-1/2 years. It was not easy for them to prepare such large quantities of food in their own kitchens, but they brilliantly took up the challenge. Thanks to their effort, the quality of the meals has always been of a high standard. Great job, ladies! A special thank you to Reena, who came to Westeinde every time to complete and assemble the meals. She is a magician! The team would also like to thank the generous donors whose donations made it possible to purchase and prepare the meals.

More information about the Meals for the Homeless team, including a short video they made about their work, can be found on their page on the outreach section of our website.

If you would like to help out, you would be most welcome to join the team. Please contact Isabelle and Anne at
