Ever since 2015 the Laurenskerk is provided with a terrace. The name is based on the former city brewery De Swarte Leeuw, at the time exploited by Dirck Janszoon Pesser (1885-1651), and his tombstone can still be found in one of the chapels in the Laurenskerk. The terrace or ’proeflokaal’ is exploited by Food for Thought, also active during interval sales at concerts or small receptions in the Laurenskerk. Food for Thought represents young, dynamic, creative, innovative, wellbeing and second chances for people. With this young and enthusiastic partner Food for Thought, the culinary wishes of the customer can be tailored for.
