Consecration of the Church-People’s Kitchen of the Faith Charity Stewardship – His Holiness Serbian Patriarch Irinej
Soup Kitchen IN 2014
At the beginning of 2014, the Soup Kitchen of the Faith Charity Stewardship had around 800 users. Already in mid-February, this number rose to somewhat more than 1000. Such a large and sudden increase was due to a number of activities which were implemented in 2014 and continued into 2015.
As assessed by many, one of the most beautiful humanitarian concerts (the first of such kind) was organised in the Zvezdara theatre. All contributions went to the kitchens. What ensued soon after was an interesting action which made the Soup Kitchen known to the wider Belgrade public. In cooperation with the “Idea” sales chain, a large transparent box was set up for the collection of long-lasting food. “Idea” required the media presentation of Kitchen’s work.
Soon after the action in “Idea”, floods engulfed Serbia in May, marking the life of our entire country and the Faith Charity Stewardship. Even in those difficult days, the Kitchen worked smoothly, helping mitigate the consequences of the floods.
Everyone is already familiar with the transparent box of the Church-People’s Kitchen of the Faith Charity Stewardship – it appears at fairs marking Epiphany, Easter, or at book fairs etc. With the blessing of the Patriarch and principal of St Sava’s Temple, as of May this box is located in St Sava’s Temple in Vračar.
This year will also be remembered by the opening of new stations. Early in the year, a station within the church of St John the Baptist at the Central Cemetery was opened, but was closed several months later. Soon thereafter, a new station was opened at the church of St Jovan Vladimir in Medaković. It very quickly became one of the largest food distribution stations.
In mid-December, the fifth station was opened – at the church of Holy Prince Lazar in Zvezdara. The opening of this station was necessary as the number of everyday users rose to 1700 in the second half of the year.
The number of volunteers in 2014 reached maximum 60. They constantly change and work according to schedule.
