Trek'n Eat outdoor meals

With the OFF ROAD project, the Katadyn Group along with Trek’n Eat has given its assistance to an extraordinary initiative one that helps children and youth with severe psychosocial and emotional disorders develop more self-confidence and thus become more enthusiastic about their school lessons.

A cooperative effort between the Nelli-Neumann School and the Karl Schreiner Home run by Essen, Germany’s Social Welfare Office and Child Welfare Agency initiated the OFF ROAD project, which has the mission of bringing the outdoors to life for children and youth with severe psychosocial and emotional disorders. The primary goal of the project is to re-excite youth uninterested in a regular education by increasing their self-confidence and self-esteem.

Already in place for a few years with regular workshops plus multi-day group outdoor experiential adventures, the project currently takes selected youth and their guardians on 10-day hikes to Italy. The trips, where participants cover approximately 10 kilometers (6.2 miles)  a day, are specifically chosen to take the youth away from civilisation with backpack, tent, sleeping bag and sleeping pad.  There, they can communicate with each other and develop a feeling of community. Trek´n Eat meals allow participants to take part in group preparation of varied meals and to achieve a real feeling of  the outdoors.

„We are excited to be able to support Project OFF ROAD with our products and look forward to feedback from participants. Our product line is diverse with items that are easy to prepare and allow easy preparation of complete meals with little weight. We are quite convinced that our products will satisfy the taste buds of the youth,“ said Steffen Fuchs, marketing for Katadyn Germany GmbH.
