Argentina: Buenos Aires


Located in Buenos Aires, Argentina, volunteers on ELIs Soup Kitchen project work to directly influence the nutrition for thousands in the Argentinian capital. Volunteers will work to distribute food that is donated by businesses in the area which is cooked and served by a "comedor." Many participants also help prepare and serve the meals. They then get the chance to interact closely with those that come in for the meals. This a great placement for those who want to see the difference they are making.
