The Emergency Food Fund program for families started in mid-2020 and continues for 2024.

With the funding of the Mendzelopoulou Foundation we have provided thousands of meals to families, single parent or not, who face food problems and in some cases domestic violence. These people live in areas of Athens, Drama, Crete and Thessaloniki, where the Local Food Banks operate and support their needs.
One of our objectives was to extend this action to areas where there are no Food Banks, due to the high needs identified. As a result, it reached families in Patras, Ancient Olympia, Orestiada, and Alexandroupolis. We thank the "Andreas Mentzelopoulos" Foundation for their unwavering support in all our efforts, enabling the operation and expansion of the program.

The Emergency Food Fund is an ‘umbrella’ program that includes distinct food purchase actions, from specific funders, for the nutritional needs of vulnerable social groups. The program started in mid-2020, also due to the new needs arising from the epidemic.
