Food Aid & Promotion of Healthy Nutrition Program

The grant supports the continuation of the Food Aid & Promotion of Healthy Nutrition Program for the school year 2016 - 2017, targeting school students

The Food Aid and Promotion of Healthy Nutrition Program is a proactive SNF initiative, implemented by the nonprofit organization Prolepsis since April 2012. The Program assists public school students in underprivileged areas, who have been affected more severely by the socioeconomic crisis. It aims to provide all participating students with a small healthy meal, free of charge, on a daily basis, promoting at the same time the notion of good health for students and their families through focused speeches, especially designed information material, brief dietary messages, as well as entertainment and educational activities.

Prolepsis was founded in 1991, with the aim to contribute in the areas of medical research, health promotion, and environmental and occupational health. The organization includes a multi-disciplinary team of physicians, public health specialists, statisticians, economists and sociologists, and has created a large network of partners in Greece, in the EU, Eastern Europe and the USA.
