 AWCH Food for the Tafel

Let's Help! 14 days!

Monday, November 23rd through Sunday, December 6th 


The Thanksgiving season falls in the middle of a Corona wave this year, and in these unprecedented times many of our Hamburg neighbors have suddenly been faced with layoffs and salary cuts. That makes it so much harder for so many people in this city to feed themselves and their families. Let's help!

We will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items for the Hamburger Tafel at many locations throughout the city. This is a wonderful tradition of the AWCH which is particularly needed this year.

The following items are particularly welcome:

    • STAPLES like rice, noodles, beans, pasta sauces, canned goods and preserves, jams.
    • PERSONAL COSMETIC ITEMS like toothbrushes, toothpaste, sanitary products for women.
    • TREATS: As the holiday season grows closer, treats like chocolate, Christmas cookies, sweets, coffee and spices are really appreciated.

But as the Tafel says, actually they can use everything!

We welcome donations of 4-5 items for you to drop off at a close collection point (we will have 11 of these points around the city), or we will pick it up at your house when you contact us. We will maintain careful social distancing and hygiene rules for your safety when we collect the items, or you arrange to leave a bag at the doorstep. The collectors will transport our donated items to the food warehouse of the Hamburger Tafel, which accepts donations in bulk. 

Here are the 11 collection points located throughout the city. Please try to use a collection point that you can reach:
