Overview: voluntary work in a community soup kitchen in La Boca, Argentina

The community center is the head office of some business ventures - a bakery and a textile center.  It also gives training to adults and after-school support and English classes for children.

The daily feeding of the people and children that go to work or study there is a basic need. The collaborators of the kitchen prepare and serve breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack for everyone.

The people who work in the different areas of the community centre have lunch in the centre every day and so volunteers have the opportunity to mix with the locals and practice speaking Spanish not only with the people who work in the kitchen but with everyone who comes to eat. You learn whilst cooking and in a relaxed and fun way. The most important thing is to show an interest in helping and learning.
