FOOD BANK: A TOOL FOR ADDRESSING FOOD INSECURITY AND FOOD WASTE IN GREECE
The deep and prolonged economic crisis in Greece has serious social repercussions. As a result of the extensive fall of per capita income and high unemployment, a significant part of the population seems to be facing difficulties in securing sufficient amounts of nutritious food. In this context, the food banks contribute decisively both to the combat of food poverty, and to the reduction of food waste.
The study summarised in this chapter of the quarterly report analyses the data on the extent of food poverty and food waste in Greece. In addition, it presents the tools available to combat these social problems, with emphasis on the Food Bank institution.
