MYTILINEOS SA – MYTILINEOS contributes to improving the nutrition of vulnerable children
In 2021, the Company ensured access for 4,000 children and adolescents from vulnerable social groups to adequate food with high nutritional value.
For a third consecutive year,
The Society distributed a total of 18,509 healthy meals by addressing nutrition issues and improving children’s healthy food choices. The results of the quantitative and qualitative analyzes following the completion of the program show that the daily nutrition of the students reduces food insecurity and hunger, promotes the physical and mental health of the children and improves their eating habits. In addition, the average food insecurity index decreased significantly by 23.3% while 73.3% of students stopped suffering from severe hunger at the end of the program.
During the pandemic, the nutritional needs of vulnerable social groups have increased, making it imperative to participate in the program by offering quantities and types of foods mainly needed for one year. A total of 61,338 glasses of milk and cereals were distributed to 3,784 children, 149 of whom live in 6 institutions and 1,448 disabled children.
The Company’s goal is to expand its cooperation in 2022 and contribute even more to the eradication of hunger and the reduction of food insecurity among children from vulnerable social groups. As of 2018, the Company has ensured the distribution of 77,804 healthy school meals to 768 children from 21 nursery, primary and secondary schools through the “Nutrition” program. In this context,
