This bank’s property is the essence of life.
The bank of food was founded in 1995 as an initiative of Gerasimos Vasilopoulos who dreamed of a non-profit foundation that would daily provide food to children, elderly and those in need.
Our work is the result of parternship of a large group consisting of volunteers, indivintuals, companies, institutions and Non-Government Organizations. Alltegether, we offer food to our fellow human beings, while we hope for a future without hunger.
Our main slogan is “We throw nothing” and we daily collect from our suppliers products with short expiration date or defective packaging that are not tainted.
We then distribute these products to institutions, kitchen soups and free meals. There, our volunteers cook and offer daily food to whom are in real need.
