With the crisis, the hunger became visible in the streets of Barcelona. Every day there were more people who needed a friend to eat something hot and try to get out.
People of all ages are susceptible to reverses of destiny and need a hand. Normal people, like you and me, have been led into this situation.
This photographic series has wanted to show a very visible reality in BCN but that many people seem to want to ignore.
For more than a year, 3 days a week, a group of anonymous volunteers, totally outside of institutions and associations, has been cooking in their homes and serving dinners with great love in the central Rambla Canaletes of Barcelona.
Among the glances and flashes of the curious tourists, the row of hunger, as they have called the media, has grown to some extent that has made the city council nervous.
After many meetings to try to find a solution. The volunteers have agreed to stop serving dinner on the Rambla and collaborate by serving dinner at an old restaurant converted into a social dining room that already worked at midday.
Now they have stopped serving dinners at Canaletes and, in an old restaurant that already worked as a social dining room at midday, the first social dining room in the city that has served dinner has been opened.
Thanks to the help of these volunteers who will continue to make the turns to serve the dinners, the dining room will open until September from Monday to Friday.
