Operation Thermos was born at the initiative of scout leaders who started to bring coffee and sandwiches to the homeless in train stations every evening. Rapidly more and more homeless people were coming, more and more volunteers were showing up and more and more meals were prepared. Today, 30 teams follow one another to offer meals and coffee to the homeless in the Central Station of Brussels from November 1st until April 30st. Each team operates with its own resources.
