About 90% of the staff is composed of volunteers. They help in preparation and serving of food, but that’s not all. In the kitchen a day pass at 12,000 kg flour. Lentils are cooked in huge cauldrons, which require 2 people to mix it. The big holidays, the kitchen is using the automatic bread machine that makes 25,000 loaves per hour.
