About the "Vollpension"
The basic idea of the "Vollpension" is quickly explained: Where do you get the best cake ever? At your granny’s, right? And also at the "Generationencafé Vollpension".
The Viennese social enterprise Vollpension has made it its business to bring seniors into the midst of society and together with other generations. The stars of Vollpension are always the "grandmas and grandpas". Vollpension's declared goal is to combat old-age poverty and loneliness among the elderly and to create places for more intergenerational interaction.
On the one hand, this happens in the "Vollpension Generationencafés" in Vienna, where grandmas and grandpas bake and serve the best pastries according to their old family recipes for guests from all over the world. Half of the team is made up of older people who earn something on top of their pension and are embedded in a social network. On the other hand, this also happens online in the world's first online granny baking school, where senior citizens pass on their professional baking knowledge in high-quality on-demand and live baking courses. Thus the granny conquers quasi baking the Internet. Julia Krenmayr, Moriz Piffl-Percevic and Hannah Lux are behind the "Vollpension" in addition to many different people who make the social business possible and alive.
At the Christmas market in Schönbrunn, grandmas and grandpas will spoil you at the "Generationencafé Vollpension" with lots of "Buchteln" and plenty of vanilla sauce: Sweet heart what more could you want!
