FOOD & POEMS
A social initiative for the homeless, featuring food, cultural goods and poems
As of November 14, 2022
In collaboration with Refugee Food, Liberté bakeries and author Josiane Asmane
As of November 14, 2022, the Thanks for Nothing, Refugee Food and Liberté bakeries teams, along with author and journalist Josiane Asmane, organize weekly distributions of meals, hygiene products and cultural goods to homeless and refugee people on the streets of Paris.
The mission of the FOOD & POEMS project is to provide material but also poetic and cultural support to homeless people.
It combines: the food aid campaigns organized by the founders of Thanks for Nothing since 2015, the food aid action carried out by the Refugee Food association since 2020, the will to collect unsold products from Liberté bakeries as well as the “Poetry saves life!” project created in 2021 by Josiane Asmane.
In concrete terms, the teams distribute: meals donated by Refugee Food, unsold products from Liberté bakeries, hygiene products, cultural and creative goods collected from cultural partners as well as poems selected and written by Josiane Asmane.
So far we have distributed over 200 meals thanks to the help of many volunteers as well as food donations from Refugee Food and the Liberté bakeries!
