Some of the organizations that have the opportunity to receive healthy food are: Red Cross, Legis, Kindness, St.Spas, Doverba, ADRA, Odigitrija Vinica, Utesitel Bitola, Association of Retired people Butel, HOPS Skopje, Lastovica …
In addition to the regular lectures to children in primary and secondary schools throughout Macedonia, Vitalia’s nutrition team continuously maintains educational workshops in organizations that care for the socially vulnerable categories, such as SOS Children’s Village and Red Cross. The purpose of the lectures is the principles of healthy eating and healthy eating habits to become part of the life of these people, who often have limited access to information.
