Stu­dents at the 12th Ele­men­tary School of Neapoli in the north­ern port city of Thes­sa­loniki tuck into a meal of spaghetti with tomato sauce at the school cafe­te­ria, yes­ter­day. The meal is part of an ini­tia­tive launched by the Min­istry of So­cial Se­cu­rity to pro­vide free meals to chil­dren from poor fam­i­lies. The pro­gram, which started in Athens, Trikala and Kavala last year, was this week ex­panded to eight mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in the Thes­sa­loniki re­gion, with the min­istry aim­ing for na­tion­wide cov­er­age in the next cou­ple of years.
