Since April 2022, we began running monthly food distributions to complement our non-food items (NFI’s). Each month we ask the beneficiaries what they would prefer between fresh vegetables and fruit or cupboard items such as olive oil and then we prepare and distribute the food packs to those living in Vial Camp and those living outside of the camp.
How it works
Vast quantities of fruit and vegetables are delivered to our warehouse. Our volunteers then begin weighing the vegetables into the specific quantities for the food packs. Once weighed, the vegetables are packed into the brown paper bags for each refugee and asylum seeker on Chios. These packs are then distributed, mostly to residents of Vial, by setting up a stand outside Vial Camp or via door-to-door deliveries using our van.
