Especially during the corona pandemic, many more Amsterdam residents are keen to cook for other people in the neighbourhood. Home cook Rosa was linked to Jan via Thuisgekookt (‘Cooked at Home’). Due to a lung disease, Jan prefers not to go out. A few times a week Rosa brings him a tasty and fresh meal prepared with love. Of course Jan and Rosa always have a chat when delivering the meal and so Rosa not only provides a tasty meal but also some social interaction. Besides Rosa, there are many more Amsterdam residents who are helping a neighbour: 1,400 people have said they would like to cook for a neighbour!
