The charitable initiative “Shared Table – Support for a Hot Meal” provided comfort and relief in the form of a hot meal to those whose only source of nourishment is to be found at a charity soup kitchen.
Support for this initiative on behalf of the Boris and Ināra Teterev Foundation began in 2010 with the award of co-financing for the establishment of soup kitchens in 15 cities. In turn, during the cold seson of 2011/2012, further support was provided by the Foundation, making it possible to set up and operate 37 soup kitchens across Latvia, under the auspices of which, charitable organisations handed out approximately 5,000 portions per meal and about 70,000 portions per month. During the cold season of 2012/2013, support from the Foundation resulted in 56 soup kitchens being run throughout Latvia, which issued 80,000 hot meals to cold and hungry people monthly.
The summer of 2013 saw the conclusion of our successful collaboration with the “Ziedot” (“Donate”) Foundation, implementing this charitable initiative.
Henceforth, the Boris and Ināra Teterev Foundation is implementing the charitable programme entitled “A Piece of Bread”. For more information, please visit: www.maizesrieciens.lv.
