We mostly eat the local food and buy local . we have 1 or 2 spots open for permanent 4-5 hours a day helpers who we will provide food for. if your part of the 3 hours a day short term group we dont provide food, but masny times like to share it anyway.... but there is tons of local cheap and tasty food places and street vendors , so being responsible for your own food does not have to cost much..... so when applying please keep in mind that while we ast the moment only can carry the responsibility to feed the long term and more committed helpers , we do love to have you and would lopve to share our space and experience and fun with you! , for those who are more long term and food is included, we usually eat the local style simple food and nothing fancy , but sometimes we have a big food parties... If your an amazing chef we also might lend yu our restaurant setting to mentor up local families and teach them some new international dishes so they can learn to cook food from your country. So lets talk ! If you are able to bake german and european bakery goods, we have access to a professional wood fire bakery oven and facility and would love to explore the possibility of you teaching local youth the tricks of the trade, since european bread would really be a great thing here since more and more people visit and miss a good german or french, russian or italian bread !
