Thanks to your incredible generosity and kindness our campaign target has been reached and this new foodKIND van will help thousands of people in need over the coming months and years!
During my most recent volunteering trip to Athens in September 2021 I volunteered with the wonderful foodKIND team for a day, under the supervision of experienced co-ordinator, Paddy. One thing that became clear from the moment he picked me up at the station at 8am… they truly need a new van!
During the day we worked hard, and we had fun.
Straight from the station, Paddy and I went to collect the days’ fresh fruit and vegetables before heading to foodKIND “HQ” and getting ready for a day’s work.
In the morning we went to Malakasa II Refugee Camp where the team give weekly dry food packs to everyone without Government support. Later we were back there, and also at Malakasa I with our hot food offering, and the ever-popular fruit salad which the kids can’t get enough of! The distributions at Malakasa I and nearby Oinofyta Refugee Camp included extra-nutritional mum and baby food packs. Thursdays is their busiest distribution day.
Their search for a new van is live and we’re waiting for word any day that they’ve found the perfect vehicle.
