Thessaly is the largest agricultural area in Greece, between Athens and Thessaloniki. It includes an area of 4 major cities, and there are significant food production companies in the area.
The Food Bank operates exclusively with volunteers, and even the warehouse is a kind of offer from a fellow citizen, Mr Chotos. The warehouse can handle all types of food, except for chilling and freezing foods, as it does not currently have chambers for proper food preservation.
For the moment in Greece, three Food Banks are operating in Thessaloniki, Thessaly and Athens. With the support of the European Food Banks Federation, the Food Banks in Greece are saving more and more food, and protecting the environment!
