"Freitisch" - what is that?
„Freitisch“ translates to „Free table“ and means in a nutshell: free food for students in particular need or in distress. The aim was and is to help in an uncomplicated way.
The concept and the institution of the "Freitisch" are quite old. As early as the 1920s, there was a free lunch for particularly needy students in Bonn, the "Freitisch". At that time, it was organised by the Studentenwohl association, which is what the Studierendenwerk Bonn used to be called.
Freitisch for students of the University of Bonn in cases of social hardship
In 2016, we launched the "Freitisch" and established it for the first time in a cooperation with the AStA of the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn to support students of the University of Bonn in cases of social hardship. The Freitisch simply pursues the goal of avoiding hunger and thus maintaining the ability to study. Due to the current pandemic situation, we have adjusted the admission criteria.
