This Easter Season Join us in Supporting Greek Families

Help Greece by making a donation to support our programs.


Prolepsis/DiatrofiDIATROFI supports students in primary and secondary public schools in socioeconomically  vulnerable areas throughout Greece and serves a dual purpose:
It provides food-aid through the distribution of a free, daily, healthy and nutritious meal to all students in the participating schools.
It promotes healthy eating through educational material and activities aimed at the students and their families.

Ladies Union of DramaThe ‘Ladies Union of Drama – Open Hospitality House’ is a small-scale non-profit philanthropic agency that helps families in Northeast Greece. In 2019 a Food Bank was added to its wide-ranging social services – one of four branches outside Athens of Food Bank Greece – that serves the needs of 1,700 family members.

The Food Bank fights hunger and food waste by providing food to children, elderly and people in need on a daily basis. Suppliers provide Food Bank with near-expired food products or products with defective packaging which are distributed fairly to charity organizations, shelters and soup kitchens. Volunteers cook on a daily basis offering a plate of food to anyone who really needs it.
