In a two floors warehouse with an industrial lift, two cooling chambers, two freezing chambers, pallet trucks and all the necessary equipment, it collects foods provided by food companies and delivers it free of charge to selected canteens and institutions throughout Attica.
"It's eight a.m. and in a side street in Krioneri Attica there is busy traffic. Trucks come and go, some unloading others loading. Is the moment when two different worlds meet: benefactors and beneficiaries. Meeting point is at the Food Bank facilities, where front-rank-men have taken on the proper management of foods for twenty years now.

Currently, 144 canteens and institutions get consistent support by the Food Bank with in the end more than 23,000 of our fellowmen benefiting.
