Aiming to quantify and record the need for food aid, to investigate the students' dietary habits as well as to further the effective implementation of the program, the Prolepsis Institute designed a survey which was distributed to all participating schools.
According to data collected for the 2018-2019 school year in schools that participated in the DIATROFI Program:
- 48.6% of families participating in the DIATROFI Program experience food insecurity, meaning they do not have access to adequate, safe and nutritional food
- 16.1% is experiencing food insecurity with moderate or severe hunger
DIATROFI fights the outbreaks of food insecurity in schools directly, by distributing millions of meals, and indirectly, by easing the financial obligations of hundreds of families.
