Hot meals, pita bread and fruit – providing food for refugees in Kos

There have been numerous initiatives providing fresh and dry food to refugees who are currently on the island of Kos. Local people have been cooking and preparing meals in their own kitchens, which are hand delivered to people in need, as well as local bakeries, restaurants and hotels donating food. Everyday I see tourists handing out water and snacks to people on the street. In collaboration with a hotel who prepares the hot meals (rice and vegetables), and a local fruit shop who provides pita bread and fruit (usually nectarines or apples), two incredible German girls regularly set up a make-shift canteen that can feed between 800-1000 people at a time. A more in-depth post detailing food creation and distribution for refugees in Kos coming soon.
