Al-Rosser Social Center
Since November 2022, Al-Rosser Social Center has been operating at full capacity and provides the following services:

  • Limited Accommodation Service: Limited Accommodation Service accommodates 16 people, over eighteen years of age. In addition to caring for resident persons, laundry or shower services are also provided during the day for other people who need it. The aim is to meet the temporary accommodation needs of adults in a situation of social exclusion in a good reception space that provides social stability that facilitates the ability to develop action plans with greater guarantees of support and competence.

  • Social Dining Room: Currently, the Social Dining Room at Al Roser Community Center is the only one in the city. New kitchen facilities and a larger staff working there allow it to prepare 240 meals a day, and it also has the ability to store food and preserve meals that are personally served, take-away or at home.

  • Social Pantry: The Social Pantry is a new way of serving people who are deemed by Reus City Council’s team of social services specialists to be in need of food assistance. With this system, a person chooses what he needs from shelves and a refrigerator full of fresh and packaged food, according to the points system developed by social services.

  • Cafeteria: The cafeteria is a shared space between the people who use this social facility and the rest of the public, especially the students and teachers of the Gabriel Ferrater i Soler Institute, located next to the center, and the neighborhood adjacent to the area. Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 7.45am to 11.45am, from which time the space becomes the social dining room.

  • Reus’ Responsible Food Management Program: Both the Social Dining Room and Social Pantry receive fresh and cooked food from Reus’ Responsible Food Management Program, which is managed out of the El Roser Community Centre.
