In 2014, the EU’s new food aid programme began to be developed. This program, the Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived or FEAD seeks not only to provide immediate material assistance to those in need throughout Europe through food aid, but also to foster social inclusion.
As the FEAD begins to be implemented throughout the Union, Eurodiaconia has created a report, “Pathways to Social Inclusion”, which highlights some best practice examples of our members who are currently carrying out programs that “bridge the gap” between extreme poverty and social inclusion. It is also hoped that this report can be useful to organisations seeking to access funds from FEAD and need project ideas which fulfill the “fostering social inclusion” goal of the program.
