We belong to a society and serve its citizens
Meals are decided every Sunday and published on the Facebook page of Bonheur du Ciel, and within days, people donate ingredients and good, each as they can. You see bags of rice or beans, cartons of potatoes, bags of bread and many other fresh vegetables they wish to offer as help. The lady chefs prepare the meals on daily basis, so everything is served fresh to guests, including juices and desserts that are always kids’ favorites. “They feed us rice pudding and we love them a lot, they’re like family now,” says one of the kids and frequent guests. The mission of serving food is for scouts, volunteers or organizations, who find in this philanthropic work what feeds their souls and helps their fellow citizens. The relationship between the activists in Bonheur du Ciel and its guests grew stronger with time till they became friends, chit chatting over lunch and asking how everyone is doing. There are the frequent ones who show up almost every day and know where the napkins and plates are, and there are the new faces, some shy, some curious, who come by once and frequent the place for the food and the loving atmosphere.
