Metropolis of Chios, Psara and Oinousses
The Holy Metropolis of Chios, Psara and Oinousses offers many social services, goods and programs to Chios residents in need including 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 around the island through the help of the army, the fire department and volunteers. The specific program started in February 2012 with 200 meals per day and it currently dis-tributes 700 daily meals, 40% of which are directed to elderly residents.
The grant regards the provision of food supplies for the “Meals of Love” Program for 12 months. Approximately 300 elderly residents in need, residing around the island of Chios, will receive a meal, 5 days a week.
