Metropolis of Chios, Psara and Oinousses
The Holy Metropolis of Chios, Psara and Oinousses offers a number of social services, goods and programs to vulnerable Chiots, including the “Meals of Love” Program. “Meals of Love” is a hot meal program whereby volunteers cook hot 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. This particular program started in February 2012 with 200 meals per day and around 700 daily meals are currently distributed, of which about 45% are directed to elderly residents.
The grant regards the provision of food supplies for the “Meals of Love” Program. Approximately 300 elderly residents in need will receive a daily meal.
