Athens to offer festive meals to homeless people at Christmas

The Athens municipality said on Friday it would offer 1,200 festive dinners each day – Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve – for homeless people and people living in homeless shelters run by the municipality or other social assistance authorities.

Each meal will include a main course, appetizers, Christmas sweets and soft drinks. The municipality also said it had distributed food, gifts for children and other essential goods to thousands of families living in poverty, which has increased significantly in Greece in recent years.
