Athens Mayor Gior­gos Kami­nis sent letters to 20,000 of the city’s res­i­dents yesterday to ad­vise them that they are el­i­gi­ble for food coupons and that they have to sub­mit ap­pli­ca­tions be­fore the Au­gust 26 dead­line. The letters were sent with the as­sis­tance of Hel­lenic Post (ELTA), which cov­ered the postal cost and will al­low res­i­dents to sub­mit their ap­pli­ca­tions at any of the 27 post of­fices within the bound­aries of the city of Athens. More than 280,000 peo­ple have ap­plied for as­sis­tance through the Fund for Euro­pean Aid to the Most De­prived (FEAD) in Greece, author­i­ties said yesterday. The Na­tional In­sti­tute for La­bor and Hu­man Re­sources, which is re­spon­si­ble for co­or­di­nat­ing the dis­burse­ment of fund­ing in Greece un­der the aegis of the Min­istry of La­bor and So­cial Se­cu­rity, said that it has re­ceived over 130,742 ap­pli­ca­tions, rep­re­sent­ing more than 280,000 peo­ple, for en­try into a food pro­gram since mid-July. Of those ap­pli­ca­tions, 50,226 have been sub­mit­ted by in­di­vid­u­als and the rest by part­ner or­ga­ni­za­tions such as public bod­ies, non­govern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions and char­i­ties rep­re­sent­ing peo­ple in need.
