Aktive City and Rotary clubs organize a charity campaign on Ash Wednesday at the Frying Weekly Market. Soup lovers are welcome.

Frying – Lent begins next week. For many, it means tightening the belt and giving up sweets, meat, or alcohol until Easter. Starting with Ash Wednesday, March 2, the Rotary Club of Munich Airport came up with delicious food with Aktiven City Freising.

(By the way, everything in this area is now also available in the regular Freising newsletter.)

Rotary Club President Hans-Peter Kohlhammer said, “Due to the pandemic, proven charitable campaigns such as business dinners or Christmas raffles at airports are no longer possible. “So we got together and found an alternative.” The idea for the fasting soup came from Rotary member Ilse Katzenbogner.

So on Ash Wednesday, representatives of the Rotary Cup and Active City serve vegetable soup from 10am to 1pm at the Frying Weekly Market. The partial cost is 5.55 euros, and the proceeds go towards charities in the area, such as women’s shelters, Lebenshilfe or Prope. V. The campaign is supported by the Geisenhofer bakery and the event kitchen in Kranzberg, says Manuela Paparizos, President of Aktive City.

The clown guarantees a special visit to the market.

In addition to soup, there are other snacks, such as: “To ensure that Lent begins with a smile and a bit of light, Aktive City hires two female clown characters to walk through the market stalls to get their visitors to walk through the market. It is a form of wit and charm,” writes Paparizos. “‘Glux’ and ‘Grandma’ are cheeky and cheerful clowns with curiosity, wit, and their own worldview, including nutrition. do,” he said.

So, for Ash Wednesday, Colehammer’s appeal to the people in Freijing is “Smile and eat the soup!”
