From April 17th through Holy Wednesday, the Hellenic Relief Foundation and their partner organization held their Easter distribution, at their headquarters in Athens, in partnership with the Social Committee of the Athenian Society. Around 460 food packages were distributed, of which 50 were set aside for distributions in Corfu. The packages contained basic food staples and non-perishables, such as oil, pasta, legumes, rice, flour, milk, sugar, coffee, and more.
