Standing in the cold for a bag of free food…


the picture is familiar. We saw hands raised to get a bag of free distributed vegetables and fruits two years. In Greece of deep recession and strict austerity measures the needs of people keep growing in alarming levels. People put their dignity aside and rush to get some free food.

Ελλάδα 2013: Χέρια απλωμένα για μια σακούλα τρόφιμα... VIDEO

This morning outside the Social Grocery in Kallithea suburb of south Athens. A large crowd of people in need awaits in the cold to get a paper with a number in order to get a bag of free food.

The people were much more than the organizers expected.

Oh! that’s Greece in December 2013.

    NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE THE DAY THAT THE PROUD GREEK PEOPLE WOULD HAVE TO RESORT TO THIS! I HOPE AND PRAY THAT THE ECONOMY WILL IMPROVE SOON AND THEY CAN GET THE WORK AGAIN
    GOD BLESS
