Hundreds queuing for free vegetables in central Athens

Farmers from the island of Crete, donated 2,700 boxes with fresh veggies to citizens who struggle financially in central Athens, Wednesday morning. Pensioners, immigrants and families lined up under the hot sun, waiting patiently for their turn to collect a 10k box with cucumbers, eggplants, tomatoes and peppers. The handout was organised by Anatoli agricultural association in cooperation with the capital’s municipal authorities and the island’s local broadcasting TeleCrete.
