The Shacolas Group announced Tuesday it would continue to provide breakfast to needy students until the end of year.
“Despite the financial crisis affecting all aspects of economic life and the Cypriot society, as well as businesses, the Nicos & Elpida Shacola Foundation and the Shacolas Group will continue for the new school year to care for and prepare up to 5,000 meals for needy children of primary schools and some high schools, like last year,” a statement said.
The meals, the statement said, are produced with fresh ingredients and will be delivered daily to Education Ministry representatives in Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca and Paphos to get to schools every morning.
“The Shacolas Group would like to express its satisfaction because through cooperation with the Education Ministry our offer reaches needy children in a timely manner,” the statement added.
Breakfasts will be given to needy children until the end of the year, as it was originally announced by the group and the foundation’s creator, businessman Nicos Shacolas, earlier this year.
