The new outdoor area at the „Haus der Vereine“ is opened

29th May 2017 – after 10 years waiting – the mayor of Reichenbach im Vogtland, Raphael Kürzinger, opened the new outdoor area for official use by the Reichenbacher Tafel and the other clubs in this house.

The Foodbank Reichenbacher Tafel e. V. organized a small party for all guests with a tombola with attractive winnings, for children a wheel of fortune, presents for the beginning of school, some sweets and juice. The Member of Saxon Parliament Stephan Hösl donated a barbecue with delicious sausages and the city council donated alcohol free drinks.

A big surprise was a check the members of Lions Club brought with them – 1500 Euro for the foodbank to work on.

The guests could inform themselves about the work of foodbank Reichenbacher Tafel and they enjoyed the day in sunny weather with interesting discussions.

Welcome to the Website of the foodbank „Reichenbacher Tafel“

Since 1999 the foodbank “Reichenbacher Tafel” helps needy people with food and consumer goods.

Every day our volunteers are on the road with two refrigerated vehicles to collect food and other consumer goods donated by discounters, supermarkets, bakeries and other. After collecting the food other volunteers control these, sort and portioning the delivered food to give these to the guests of foodbank.
