foodKIND is a small 100% volunteer-run humanitarian organization that gives food with kindness to refugees.
foodKIND distributes hot meals to people in Malakasa camp who are awaiting official registration and therefore receiving no other support. We also support pregnant and nursing women in camps Malakasa and Oinofyta by distributing weekly nutrient-rich food packs to support the healthy development of babies.
We have basic dormitory-style volunteer housing in the small town of Dilesi about one hour north of Athens. In order to make sure that all the money we raise goes towards food, we ask our volunteers to donate 10€/night towards the cost of the volunteer house, any surplus goes towards the mission. The house has a washing machine, communal space, wifi and a kitchen for volunteer use.
Typical daily jobs include chopping, lifting, smiling, carrying, cooking, laughing, cleaning, scrubbing, and feeling joy. Due to the large amounts of food that we provide there is some heavy lifting and carrying.
