Stelios Haji-Ioannou's charitable programme "Food from the heart" constantly expands its work.It has been offering, since its inception three years ago, 5,000,000 snacks "from the heart" through 21 distribution points in Greece and Cyprus. It is worth noting that the most recent distribution point opened 5 month ago, in Evripidou Street in Athens, already serves 2,200 people daily.

 Three years ago, in May 2013, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder of easyJet, easyGroup Group and Stelios Philanthropic Foundation, announced the launch of the programme "Food from the heart" in Cyprus, aiming to offer a free snack and a smile from the heart to people who really need it without any racial, religious and social discrimination.

A year later, the programme started in Athens at the Foundation's building in Germanikou Street 18 in Kerameikos. Soon the "Food from the heart" extended in Drapetsona, and other areas in Attica, reaching a total of 15 distribution points in Greece. 

Moreover, the programme is in collaboration with the "oloi mazi boroume" (All together we can) and the Philanthropic Organisation of the Archdiocese of Athens "Apostoli" (Mission) through which have been distributed in the last year 1,000,000 snacks. 

The response was and remains high, underlining the need for actions that shape a better everyday life, amid the economic crisis. The fact that in Cyprus lately, the demand has been reduced, only positive can be characterized. Unfortunately in Greece there is an increase of those who apply for participation in the programme. 

For the inspirer of the "Food from the heart" programme, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou "The best news would be a day, in the not too distant future, our fellow citizens no longer need us. It would be a great joy, one day not to have people in our distribution points and end the programme. But until then we will be there to help our fellow people in need, both in Greece and Cyprus."
