Over 700 people flock to municipality’s Christmas lunch


The City of Athens served more than 700 people at its free Christmas lunch at an indoor stadium in Rouf, west of the city center. Dozens of municipal employees and volunteers helped serve the dinners – which were this year donated by a Chicago-based Greek-American family – mostly to elderly people and a small number of families with children. Meanwhile, food and Christmas sweets were distributed to about 200 poor and homeless people by municipal authorities in Piraeus. Similar initiatives were organized by the Archbishopric of Athens and other municipalities.
