New Food Bank Opens in Prague 1, Offering Support to Vulnerable Residents

A new Food Bank branch is set to open its doors in the heart of Prague on Wednesday, April 3rd.

Located at 14 Řeznická Street, the outlet is a collaboration between the Prague 1 Municipal District and the non-profit organization Nový prostor.

“We’re delighted to utilize Prague 1’s facilities for such a meaningful purpose,” said Prague Mayor Terezie Radoměřská (TOP 09).

“This Food Bank will provide dignified food assistance to residents facing hardship. Even during the pandemic, our OSPOD department offered irregular support to families in need. This new branch will ensure consistent weekly access to essentials for those who require it.”

“Opening a Food Bank branch in Prague 1 is fantastic news. This vital resource will not only prevent food waste but also foster solidarity within the community,” said Ivana Antalová, Councillor for Social Affairs and Accessibility for Prague 1.

Food parcels distributed at the branch will include essential food items such as rice, pasta, canned goods, and other non-perishables, along with occasional pastries, vegetables, and sweets. Additionally, clients can access social rehabilitation services offered by Nový prostor.

The rising cost of living, particularly energy and housing in Prague’s historic center, coupled with delays in social benefit payments, creates significant challenges for many residents, especially vulnerable seniors.

To ensure accessibility, a recommendation is not required – only proof of identity.

Eligibility for food assistance includes people with disabilities, seniors, and single parents. Distribution will take place every Wednesday between 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM at the Řeznická Street location.
