About the Non-Profit Organisation

Tafel Köln e.V.

The Tafel in Cologne is an indispensable social institution in the Cologne help system, which has made it its mission to help people in need with the most natural: with food, attention and solidarity. Although there are many people in Cologne who are concerned about their daily nutrition, huge amounts of food are thrown away every day. This is exactly where our volunteers help. They collect tons of donated food from supermarkets, bakeries and manufacturers and distribute it to needy people.
