The project

A large number of Ho Chi Minh’s population live in poverty and this project aims at providing support to those who can’t afford to support themselves, by cooking and serving them meals.


This food shop, run by an NGO together with local people, has been helping poor people by providing them affordable lunch for more than three years now. The food shop is self-funded and relies on donations and local people who work to cook and serve the meals. By joining the project, you will have an opportunity to prepare and serve cheap, high-quality and hygienic meals to more than 500 people among which are students, children, old people, workers and disabled people. Everyone who is in need is welcome and nobody is discriminated against.

Fill your heart and the plates of people in need!


The location

Vietnam is not only one of the most populated countries in the world but it is also a dynamically developing one where roads are being renovated, new buildings are being erected and cities are changing. Vietnam has not been influenced as much by Western culture as Thailand and Cambodia and it has a unique identity, which manifests in many ways including its delicious traditional food. Vietnam's fast-growing economy is boosted by tourism which is led by the growing interest for the country's fascinating history and breathtaking sights such as its beaches, the beautiful countryside in the north and the typical rice fields. Having put their painful past behind them, the Vietnamese are proud of their heritage and they embrace life with determination and enthusiasm. The largest city in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City, was formerly named Saigon and was the capital of the French colony of Cochinchina. Today it is a bustling city where the new and the ever-present old merge at a dizzying speed.

Typical day

The daily schedule on the project starts with breakfast and continues at the food shop where you will assist in the preparation of the food including cooking, cleaning and serving. After you have lunch you will head back to the accommodation and will enjoy your free time in the afternoon.

Free-time activities

The highlight of any trip to Vietnam is to learn about their recent history, and experience life as a Vietcon in the Cu Chi tunnels. There are also plenty of beaches and culture to soak in.
