Kuchařky bez domova (Homeless Cooks)

As women without means, often facing health or mental difficulties, foreigners or Roma women encounter discrimination and rejection in their search. And that’s why our social bistro “Homeless Cooks’ Dining Room” is here. In the Dining Room, women gain resources for housing or debt repayment, experience in professional gastronomy, and restored confidence. In BCC we want to encourage these women and support them.
