Municipality of Patras

Equipment
The grant supports the purchase of kitchen equipment, in order to increase production capacity and improve service quality. The Soup Kitchen is located next to the church of Saint Sofia in the city of Patras, and provides care for 120 impoverished and homeless individuals, providing them with a warm and nutritious meal, five days a week. The Kitchen also offers access to a social worker and provides information on additional social services.

In 2012, the Municipality of Patras along with nine more organizations created a social partnership to deliver an action plan against poverty. The plan led to the creation of a social grocery store, an allotment garden, a time bank, a liaison office and a soup kitchen.
