The Holy Metropolis of Chios, Psara and Oinousses offers social welfare programs with the aim to provide goods and services to parishioners and local residents in need. On the island of Chios, one of the most significant social welfare programs is the "Meals of Love" Program. "Meals of Love" is a hot meal program whereby volunteers cook meals on a daily basis, Monday through Friday. All meals are cooked in Chios town and then distributed to local parishes through the help of the army and fire department. The specific program was launched in February 2012 offering 200 meals per day. By October 2012, it had expanded to 540 meals per day, and as of October 2013, it was offering 670 meals per day.
