Primafood and the Ste Cécile Fëschbech-Angelsbierg-Schoos choir served meals within the Stëmm vun der Strooss restaurant.

Contrary to the bad reputation of Friday 13th, the customers of the Stëmm vun der Strooss have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon, thanks to the support of nine members of the Ste Cécile Fëschbech-Angelsbierg-Schoos choir, who served them meal and desserts offered by Primafood. Following the idea of John Daems, former boss of the company named Primafood, but also leader of the choir, this initiative came out: Two volunteers have helped in the kitchen, preparing the hot meals which have been distributed for free during this event. Two others volunteers helped in the restaurant room, serving the dessert. Another person distributed the sandwiches, another was taking care of the distribution of the coffee, and the two last volunteers have helped behind the counter. In the meantime, the leader of the choir, John Daems was at the entrance, personally accommodating the customers of the Stëmm vun der Strooss restaurant. This magnificent banquet managed by volunteers, has been much appreciated by people whose life has not been easy.

Who are we?

Founded in 1996, the Stëmm vun der Stross (which literally translates to ‘Voice of the Street’) encourages the social and professional integration of underprivileged but also discriminated individuals. Appointed and concerted by the health minister, the non-profit association collaborates with the Luxembourgish Red Cross. The headquarters are located in the capital city, Luxembourg. In 2004, the city of Esch-sur-Alzette additionally offered premises, which enabled the establishment of a second restaurant. Furthermore, the workshop for social reintegration called Schweesdreps is also located in the second-largest city of Luxembourg. During the year of 2014, the Stëmm vun der Stross was able to open new branches in Hollerich, Schoenfels, Tétange and Belvaux. The association mainly supports people who are homeless, unemployed, living on a minimum wage, ex-criminals, asylum seekers, immigrants and people who suffer from addictions such as alcoholism, drugs and medication.

We work for the social and professional integration of the disadvantaged people.

In 2015 Stemm vun der Stross enabled:

  • 45 722 served meals in the social restaurant of Hollerich and 27 524 served meals in the second premise in Esch-sur-Alzette, which is a total of 73 246 served meals;
  • 148 tons of free redistributed food products;
  • 526 medical consultations;
  • 270 individuals who are coached in our workshops of professional reintegration;
  • 29 re-accommodated individuals within the activity and offered service of Immo Stëmm;

Testimonials

‘I had come to join the Stëmm through another friend. I had been working for a bank most of my life and told myself that I would want to do something different in my retirement, mainly as a volunteer. All my colleagues have been skeptical towards my work at the Stëmm. My loved ones, however, have been very supportive. The first time I started here, I did not know how people would react. I thought that they might be aggressive. But that was not the case at all. Nobody really knew my role. ‘Oh hey, the new guy!’’ Nobody knew that I was in fact a volunteer. Now, I have simply become one of them.’
Nico, 67
