Come à la Maison invites people in need to enjoy fine Italian food
The restaurant Come à la Maison, situated in the award-winning concept store situated on 70, route d’Esch in Luxembourg City, opened its doors to people in need on the 22nd of february. The popular family-owned Italian restaurant served 90 meals free of charge to disadvantaged people who use local charity Stëmmvun der Strooss’ services.
The worthy initiative was lead by Nathalie Moerman who put together a team of 12 volunteers, including owners Séverin and Véronique Laface,to serve a delicious Italian menu of mixed antipasti, chick pea soup, gnocchi with Bolognese sauce followed by a “Moelleux au chocolat”. Guests enjoyed a background of Italian music while they tucked in to their four-course meal. In addition to this already very generous gesture, Come à la Maison gave away 30 food packs containing a portion of gnocchi Bolognese, a bar of chocolate and a soft drink. The lively occasion was much appreciated by guests and volunteers alike.
“We are always so grateful and touched by the generosity of people who give up their time for a good cause and in doing so show solidarity towards disadvantaged people and take a step towards combating social exclusion,” says Alexandra Oxacelay, director of Stëmm vun der Strooss.
