GREEK food wars have turned the country into a food-scarce, food-deprived country, according to the United Nations.
According to an annual report from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, the number of food-insecure households in the country has doubled from 12.3 million to 14.4 million since 2014.
The report shows that in 2015, Greece was one of the top 20 countries for the number and percentage of people in food-insufficient households, with a total of 10.7 million people.
In comparison, the United States had only 6.9 million people in such households.
“The situation in Greece is very serious,” said Mark Degenhardt, director of the UN office in Athens.
“We have a food security crisis that has never been witnessed before in the European Union.”
Greece’s food crisis began when the country’s banks and financial institutions froze the countrys assets, forcing people to sell their possessions, such as furniture, cars, clothing and household appliances.
The country is still struggling to find food to feed its population.
In an attempt to curb the crisis, the country adopted a “food-first” government program, which requires all people to receive enough food.
The program has helped reduce hunger by allowing Greek families to purchase frozen food and cooking oil.
But according to Degenhart, food insecurity has worsened the crisis by not providing enough food to help families in need.
“Many of our people are struggling with their basic needs,” Degenhoff said.
“Food insecurity is also affecting the health and education of our children.”
The UN report states that food insecurity was first documented in the late 1990s, when about 70 percent of the population was food insecure.
to the report, in the mid-2000s, Greece saw an increase in the number one food-starved countries, as the number-two country was Romania.
Since then, Romania has experienced a food crisis that led to a large number of people going hungry.
The UN estimates that food-stamp offices in Greece, Bulgaria, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and the Slovak Republic were the most affected countries by food insecurity.
In Romania, the UN says more than 100 million people are in food insecure households.
In Greece, the report says there are currently about 100,000 people living in food poverty.
