  • culinary workshops  solidarity of 2h30  (little Ney)

  • small pots workshops at PMI for mothers in precariousness

  • non-cooking workshops at solidarity festivals or hostels

Commitment prayers for  the year 2017/ 2018  :

After a year and a half of activity, the primary vocation of bringing a proposal of benevolence in food and the tools necessary to access it is emerging more clearly.

It seems that it is in the field of solidarity and health prevention that the actions of the association are able to be most effective.

It is also proposed to members to develop the solidarity branch  and  strengthen axis  preventive health/well-being.

 

According to the choice of the members, the time available and the assistance obtained  different actions  can be  carried out:

  • renew  REAs  for children (renaming TAP), small pots workshops, workshops  solidarity monthly as well as operations outside the walls organized by Petit Ney

  • Offer culinary workshops to  social institutions 

  • Propose a monthly LCB event   

  • Organize 4 deep food retreats (3 days) outside of Paris

To organise  benevolence breakfasts 

  • Develop Deep Food Listening Circles

  • Other ideas  : Tasting workshops in retirement homes or with hospitalized children, dessert workshops  in association houses

 

To carry out its actions, will be  necessary

  • To identify the social and health actors related to these projects

  • To build a mobile kitchen allowing workshops in hospitals and other environments

  • To bring together committed volunteer members

  • Find grants or funded organizations to offer virtually free workshops to participants  (from 2 to 5 euros)

 

For the year 2017 more precisely, we will focus a priori on the call for volunteers, the search for subsidies, action with women and breakfast maraudes with listening circles for volunteers.

 

 

The debate is open  and thank you for participating.

In the name of kindness  ;

 

 

 

 

 

Valerie Duvauchelle
