The Hamburger Tafel works closely with social welfare organizations in Hamburg. During our daily rounds to grocery stores, supermarkets, hotels and other places we pick up a variety of items that we then deliver to the welfare facilities. There, the food is checked and then either processed or directly handed out to the facilities visitors. This way we deliver around 30 tons of groceries per week.
The Cologne-based non-profit association “Cap Anamur – Deutsche Not-Ärzte e.V.” provides humanitarian aid worldwide. This help also continues to be offered in those areas where media interest has long since subsided. The association mainly focuses on medical care and access to education.
