Anybody may open his or her own pop-up restaurant at any unoccupied place in Slovakia on May 20 when the Restaurant Day will take place in Slovakia. The only thing they need to do is to choose an original place and share good food.

Slovakia’s non-governmental organisations associated with the DobráKrajina.sk site will present their activities as part of the international food carnival Restaurant Day, held on May 20 in 60 countries.

In Slovakia, the organisations will open their pop-up restaurants in Bratislava, Žilina and also Prešov, the SITA newswire reported.

In Bratislava, visitors will be able to learn more about five organisations. One of them is Eduma, which will offer the food at the premises of the Old Town Hall. Non-governmental organisation People in Need will serve pancakes from various parts of the world on Baštová Street, while OZ Ulita will organise a picnic in its community centre in Bratislava’s Kopčany neighbourhood.

The civic association Nepočujúce Dieťa (Deaf Child) will prepare some refreshments on Partizánska Lúka, while the theatre-therapeutic company Stopy Snov will perform a play and offer some canapés in the community centre Zora in the Ružinov borough, SITA reported.

In Prešov, the event will take place on May 19 during the May Fest, organised by the civic association OZ Barlička, which helps seniors and disabled people.

Žilina’s association Návrat, which helps orphaned children find new families, will organise an event close to the Budatín Castle on May 20.

People visiting the pop-up restaurants pay a voluntary fee, through which they can support the activities of participating NGOs. Except for food, there are usually various activities accompanying the event, as well as workshops presenting their work.

Restaurant Day was first held in Helsinki, Finland in 2011. Since then it has spread to 60 countries across the world, including Slovakia.
