The small blackboard at the school canteen reads “Items Available”. Below is the date and the items high school students in difficult economic situation can obtain free of charge.
On Monday, November 21st 2016, the items available were:
1 Spinach pie
4 Cheese pies
The students of the High School in Koroni, Messinia in southern Peloponnese had the idea to help their co-students in need thus without hurting their dignity.
Some student in better economic situation or even some teacher pays for one or more items at the canteen counter, the student who cannot afford a snack, picks an item from the blackboard list free of charge. The canteen owners erases the item from the blackboard.
The numbers and the kinds of the items available change day by day. The value of the goods varies between 30 cents and 1.5 euro.
PS We hope other schools implement this remarkable initiative as well.
