Thessaloniki boosts free breakfast handouts for schoolchildren

The Municipality of Thessaloniki has increased the number of students it helps to feed every day from 600 to 860, providing them with a breakfast sandwich or cheese pie.

In collaboration with a Greek catering firm, the local authority on Monday started distributing breakfasts to selected students at 54 schools in the district whose families are facing serious financial difficulties.

The program, which will continue through the end of the school year, costs the municipality 45,000 euros.
