Shortly after the new year Steen vzw prepares a meal for those who live on the margins of our society (homeless persons, asylum seekers, etc.).
This initiative is carried out as an extension of the charitable work of DAKANT, a non-profit organization that works to help the homeless in Antwerp. Every Sunday from the third Sunday of October to the last Sunday of March DAKANT hands out soup, hot drinks, food, and clothing in a canteen made available by the Royal Atheneum of Antwerp in central Antwerp.
Once every year during the festive season, Steen vzw takes on this daunting task, from buying the necessary products to the preparation and serving of the meal. Everybody, regardless of age, race or religious conviction is welcomed. Nobody has to produce ID and no questions are asked about why our guests are in need.
