Ludwik Piotrowski, Head Cook

Of Polish and German descent, Ludwik brings colourful flavours and a gourmet feel to the meals he prepares and serves in the community kitchen. Ludwik began with the organization as a volunteer, and with his sarcastic wit and easy-going nature he brought new perspectives to our staff team in July 2014.

Ludwik enjoys an active and healthy lifestyle. Some of his favorite outdoor sports include jogging, cycling and tennis.

If you ever find yourself in our kitchen, be sure to stop and chat with Ludwik – with a Masters in Political Science and experience working as a journalist and correspondent in Europe and the Middle East, you’re sure to have an interesting conversation. It’s also common to hear him proudly speak about his lovely wife, children, and grandchildren. Ludwik will tell you he loves his role at Agapè because of the great volunteers and staff he gets to work with, and the fulfillment he gets when people are happy eating in the dining room.
