In the week before Christmas, the Caritas food truck goes on tour through Berlin with entertainer and singer Frank Zander. The Zander office in Berlin announced that up to 350 hot meals would be distributed to homeless and needy people every day between Monday and Thursday. There is game goulash with Bohemian dumplings, red cabbage and cranberries, as well as a vegan version on request.
In addition, gift bags, sleeping bags, dog food and drinks are distributed to the guests on all four days. Zander is supported on his tour by Caritas, the police union and numerous prominent helpers.
These include Berlin’s Governing Mayor Franziska Giffey, Brandenburg Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke, Interior Senator Iris Spranger (all SPD), Social Senator Katja Kipping (left) and Berlin’s CDU boss Kai Wegner. Hertha professional Kevin-Prince Boateng, ex-boxing world champion Henry Maske, stumps from “Knorkator” and comedian Simon Gossejohann will also help Zander distribute food.
The Caritas food truck has been around since 2020 because of the Corona -Pandemic had to close many day care centers and soup kitchens for the homeless or reduce the food offerings. Zander also moved his traditional Christmas dinner for the homeless from the hotel Estrel to down the street and has been active with the “Christmas with Frank on Tour” campaign ever since. ( epd)
