At the end of October, four members of the regional board “Tafel Sachsen e.V.” met with members of parliament and staff of the European Parliament in Strasbourg at the invitation of the Saxon MEP Hermann Winkler to discuss the theme “Food saving, helping people“.
These extremely constructive discussions focused on the development of the social level in the Eastern European member states, on the effective handling of the high-quality food and on the constructive contribution of the various panels to poverty alleviation in Germany and neighboring countries.  The main point of agreement was the attitude of the TAFELN towards political and economic positions in the context of a European social policy that focuses on the social needs of sections of the population of neighboring  European states.

Statement Essener Tafel

Berlin, 02/02/2018


For the current coverage of the Tafel Essen e.V., the Tafel Deutschland e.V.

New customers of the independent association SkF Essener Tafel e.V., who do not have a German passport, are recently listed on a waiting list for the distribution of goods. The reason for this is the last significant increase in the number of customers and the need to relax the resulting situation on the ground. Jochen Brühl, chairman of the umbrella organization Tafel Deutschland eV, explains: “The goal and task of all the boards is to distribute food to all those in need and to alleviate acute hardship.” Our need is based on need and not on origin then this is only due to situations that can not be handled differently by the local volunteers “. Jörg Sartor, Chairman of Tafel Essen eV, says: “We want to do justice to all the people who come to us, given the situation in the dispensaries, we had no other way of dealing with the challenge, and we hope the situation will soon move on improves that we no longer have a waiting list All previous customers of the Essen board are supported as usual with food “.
Brühl adds: “The fact that conditions in Germany are now so dramatic shows the enormous misconduct of politics in recent years, and we expect the new government to finally address the country’s most pressing issues and provide sustainable solutions for the acute ones It can not and must not be outsourced by the state “.
