The Magic Table (Stolček, prestri sa) is an activity by which we regularly help to people in need in a form of giving non-perishable foods, such as rice, flour, pasta, sugar, oil, cans, coffee, tea, cocoa and others. Together we thus create an always set table, where there is enough room and food for those who feel the lack of it.
Mostly to families which found themselves in a financial need but also to individuals living on their own. Help is provided in a personal way, it begins by a talk with a client. Thus those to whom we help can start making real steps and solve their difficult situation. If a solution is not possible in a short term or doesn't exist at all, then our food aid is really a charity activity. If a solution is found, then it is only a temporary support. Also a situation can happen when a food aid ends because a client has a solution available for his situation but he does nothing for it.
You can bring durable food items when the Capuchin church is open and place them in a marked container in the confessional corridor in front of the sacristy.
You can also buy durable food online through our website in the "Support our work" section.
If you would like to organize a durable food collection in your area (workplace, school, etc.), please let us know.
After receiving foods into a storage and their exact recording we package them into packs according needs of families or individuals to whom we help. Then we drive them to the households. Current capacities let us deliver packages once a month.
Be sensitive to your neighborhood, mainly to those, with which you meet more often. Exactly these people often don't ask for help themselves, because they think that others can be even in a worse situation. Many times however they go through a difficult time when they give the last food to children with a feeling of helplessness about tomorrow. It is our priority to help exactly to such people, because they are people who fight, who need very little to stand up on their own feet. Tell us about them. By email email@example.com or by phone at 0910 852 088 or 0910 852 093.
Next interesting information about the collection and also from where we drew the inspiration you can find at this article.
