The university gastronomy has been offering the solidarity meal since 2004. It started with the "Enough rice for a lifetime" project in Indonesia. A simple rice dish in the dining hall symbolised solidarity with people in need. 25 cents of the proceeds of this solidarity meal went to this project.
In the meantime, the "Soliessen" is served every week in the dining halls and in the cafeterias the "Solimuffin" contributes 10 cents. The proceeds are used to support changing projects of our cooperation partners Evangelische Studierendengemeinde Karlsruhe (ESG) and Katholische Hochschulgemeinde Karlsruhe (KHG). For many years, the KHG, ESG and Studierendenwerk have been helping people all over the world together with the students of the local universities. In the meantime, a total of around 100,000 euros has been raised! The current project #beefair - which was selected together with the partners ESG and KHG - supports beekeepers in Laos to secure food with sustainable beekeeping, biodiversity and environmental protection.
