The Hellenic Relief Foundation and their partner organization held their distribution for the month of October at their headquarters in Athens, in partnership with the Social Committee of the Athenian Society, under all COVID health and safety protocols. The food packages, provided to financially weakened families and single households, contained pasta, rice, flour, orzo, oil, vegetables, meat, and more. In total, around 360 food packages were distributed.

As part of the distribution, the beneficiaries had the opportunity to obtain clothing, donated by the omogenia through a number of Philoptochos groups from parishes in New Jersey. In addition, school supplies were offered complements of Max Stores, NEOHART, and the H.R.F.’s partner organization. As per usual, institutions such as the Meropeio Nursing Home of Athens and others were also supported.

As per usual, the distribution efforts are made possible by the monthly support of the H.R.F.’s corporate donors including the N. Konstantopoulou Group, the Social Committee of the Athenian Society, Agrovim, Food Bank, Barba Stathis, Arla Foods, the regional government of Attica, and more.

The COVID-compliant distribution was organized under the direction of Ms. Maria Siourdi, director of the H.R.F’s partner organization, and with the assistance of volunteers including Soula Belli and Emy Spanou.
