“Together for Children” and BEN’S ORIGINAL™ Set the Table

“Together for Children” in collaboration with Ben’s Original™, are committed to creating opportunities to enhance inclusion, aiming for a world without barriers, continuing their efforts to support the new group of aspiring young chefs in 2024, supported by the organization. Already, in the first two years of this significant inclusion initiative, 20 young individuals were given the opportunity to attend cooking seminars, laying the groundwork for their professional future.

From February 26 to May 4, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of Ben’s Original™ products will be allocated to provide free cooking course scholarships to young people supported by “Together for Children”. In this way, consumers will not only purchase the products they need but will also become part of this exceptional initiative.

For another year, “Together for Children” provided 20,000 portions of nutritious rice to meet the dietary needs of 460 children living in childcare facilities supported by the organization.

As Alkis Gerallis, General Manager Mars Multisales South Europe for Greece, Cyprus, and Malta, stated, “Our campaign ‘We are all original!’ for an inclusive future without exclusions is not limited to a simple slogan. On the contrary, it is a commitment to responsibility towards children and young people who need the support of all of us to claim a better tomorrow equally. We are particularly happy and proud of the 28 scholarships we have provided so far and for our young chefs who already see their lives changing!”

On her part, Loukia Tertipi, Social Worker and Responsible for the “Together for Children” program “Supporting vulnerable families”, thanked Ben’s Original™ for its contribution and highlighted the significant role of initiatives promoting equal opportunities in the education and development of young people.
