Meals in the Food and Beverage Zones Will Satisfy Pilgrims’ Tastes

Organization of Meals at Krakow’s Błonia

Błonia – the traditional place for papal meetings with pilgrims in Krakow – will also be a hub of activity during World Youth Day.

At Błonia, WYD will officially open, and ceremonies with the participation of Pope Francis will take place there. Nearby there are organized a Zone of Reconciliation, Youth Festival events, as well as the Vocations Centre.

Five food and beverage zones at Błonia will feed pilgrims

Błonia is already prepared to receive over 1 million pilgrims. Throughout the area, food and beverage zones have been set aside for pilgrims. Among these the central one is Main Food Court, located at Juvenia Stadium at the very heart of Błonia, while the remaining are located at: Cracovia Stadium, on the premises of the Zwierzyniecki Klub Sportowy, as well as two by ul. Piastowska.

Food and drink zones are points at which all visitors will be able to eat either hot or cold meals. The official catering areas at Błonia, in addition to the regular sale of meals, will enable pilgrims to exchange meal tickets for food. It is foreseen that most of these areas will be operating 24 hours a day.

What’s on the menu?

Pilgrims in the zones within Błonia will find fast-food type meals as well as main meals (both hot and cold), regional Polish dishes, grilled meals, as well as desserts. There will also be no shortage of vegetarian and gluten-free meals. Takeout will be possible for all meals served. People wishing to buy coffee, tea, cold drinks, or snacks will have the possibility of using self-serve vending machines, thanks to which it will be possible to buy these products without waiting in long lines. All this is awaiting pilgrims at Błonia! Additional zones will distribute water.

Everyone will find something
Restaurateurs rose to the challenge and made prices that will fit any pocket. The prices range between 10 and 20 PLN. The biggest food and beverage zone, Main Food Court, will be able to serve over 100,000 pilgrims every day.

“Our main goal is to effectively serve every hungry person who comes to us. That is why we have back rooms, where we prepare fresh and nutritious meals. In our menu, pilgrims will find popular fast-food type meals, but also lunch boxes made in, and sent to us straight from, Italy. There will be no shortage of cold or hot beverages. We’ve also remembered about vegetarians! Our catering area will begin service on Monday, and will be open 24 hours a day,” says Olga Zalewska, the Main Manager of Main Food Court.

The possibility of paying with a credit card, many cashier stations and order pick-up points, as well as fast and professional staff are just some of the advantages of the Main Food Court.

“I won’t lie – a month ago, we were still wondering how we could possibly feed all the pilgrims at Błonia. There was a lack of areas in the vicinity that could serve such a large number of people, but thanks to the openness of all the restaurateurs, we were able to open five food and drink zones. Behind each of these companies is knowledge that comes from experience. Each of the pilgrims who come to Błonia will easily be able to exchange their meal ticket or purchase a meal. All that’s left is to wait for the first participants of World Youth Day in Krakow!” says Father Józef Gubała.

Where to find information about food?

In order to ensure quick communication, the organizers have created a “Pilgrim” app, with which anyone can easily find the food and drink zone that interests them, as well as the choices available there. Thanks to its use of location services, the application is able to lead pilgrims to the chosen area, all while informing them how long the lines are.

Below are the places where you will eat at Błonia

1. Main Food Court WYD, ul. Na Błoniach 7,
2. Zwierzyniecki Klub Sportowy, ul. Na Błoniach 1,

Mixed System

The WYD Local Organizing Committee is planning to introduce the so-called mixed system by signing agreements with some 2,000 restaurants and bars in Krakow and the surrounding areas and opening some 100 facilities serving food – food & drink zones and mobile food stands at the sites with the greatest number of pilgrims, i.e. at the sites of the main events, catecheses, and the Youth Festival.

All these restaurants, bars, stands, etc. will accept both meal vouchers and money. You can spend your vouchers in any place marked with an A3 poster at the front. You will find the list of the food-serving places in the WYD 2016 App and on the website www.krakow2016.com.

“Packed Meal”

Only pilgrims who have selected a package with meals will be entitled to a “Packed Meal.” “Packed Meals” will be partially distributed to parishes located within 5 kilometres of Campus Misericordiae, and partially given out on the routes leading to Campus Misericordiae.
