Verdal Red Cross is one of the local branch of Nord-Trøndelag Red Cross. In this local branch different activities are being run to help the people who are in need. Verdal Red Cross Café is one activity of Verdal Red Cross to reach out to people who have difficulties in everyday life. This café meets a target group in the community who needs help in terms of being able to have a cheap meal, or maybe just a cup of coffee and a piece of cake, it may also be the people who just need a place to go out for talking to other people. This café is opened for three days in a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and serves food to the people in very low price.
Last Wednesday, we also became a part of this café where we met some new people who were volunteering for Verdal Red Cross. After having some conversation with colleagues and volunteers who were working in the café, we came to know that mostly students, old people and people who have low income come to eat in the café even though it is open for everyone.
Thora Fornes, one of the volunteer in the café explained us about cooperation between café and super markets in Verdal and about positive responses they received from the people who visit the café. We helped the volunteers working in the café in making food and arranging table. We also got opportunity to have lunch in the café together with our colleagues working in Verdal and Levanger and had a good time there.
We hope that you enjoyed our blog post.
