Description of the event: 
Did you ever feel like you have to somehow appreciate all the good things you have and take for granted in your life? Now you have the chance to do so and to give back to the city and the people that welcomed you in your Erasmus journey. Make the difference in your Erasmus and let’s improve someone’s life by providing them with a good cosy meal. CASA is an institution that helps people that do not have a home or families in risk situations by mainly giving them a meal every day. We will give you the opportunity to work at their restaurant where they serve dinner to people in need. If you think that you won’t have time to do this all semester, but you want to come anyway this time, feel free to join us!
