The Wider Image: Greeks slide deeper into poverty
Shopping carts full of plastic bags containing food supplies for impoverished Greeks are seen at an Athens municipality-run center. Figures for the food bank, which serves central Athens, show a similar trend on a local scale to the wider Eurostat data. About 11,000 families - or 26,000 people - are registered there, up from just 2,500 in 2012 and 6,000 in 2014. About 5,000 are children.
