Breakfast is the same offer to hostel guests, at the hall lounge, lunch is prepared the day before by the hostel cheff which takes into account intolerances and preferences, all !!! We are struggling to please the vegans, but we still do our best. Then the lunch is placed in boxes in accordance with Italian hygiene standards (we have an external company that takes care of food safety and HACCP self-control plans) and stored in a fridge dedicated to the staff. The staff then has available both gas fires and microwave ovens, crockery, glasses, cutlery, condiments, bread. The fridge can also be used to store the volunteer's own products.
As for the dinners on Tuesdays and Saturdays, the same as lunches, plus the buffet dedicated to the guests from whom the volunteers eat anyway. Monday pasta party, Wednesday social farm dinner, Thursday creeps, Friday pizza party, Sunday bbq or polenta. All for free for the volunteers, we all eat together: crew, guests, volunteers when the kitchen is to eat!

All the experience events at the hostel are free for volunteers and external ones, such as wine tours or hiking with lunch, guests pay 20 euros a head for some volunteers for free because they help others if they want 12 euros.
