A space in Nørrebro where you can eat and pay what you can for the meal. You can also volunteer here.
A former church that transformed into a community center, where you can study or just hang out. Located in Vesterbro, they host events like dances, yoga, trivia nights, and crafts. They also have fællesspisning – a concept where you sit at a long table with strangers and, in this case, eat dinner for only 50 DKK.
