Introduction of summaries should contain the following information:
An EU programme will continue to supply food to the EU's most deprived citizens for until the end of 2013, thanks to a rescue plan agreed with the Council and approved in plenary session on Wednesday. The scheme, with a budget of up to €500 million per year, currently provides food aid for 18 million people living in poverty in 20 EU Member States. "The current economic crisis, together with difficult weather conditions, has had a severe impact on the poor. Nearly 18 million homeless, unemployed, elderly or handicapped people, but also large families and single parents, benefit from the programme today. It is good that the EU remembers them. But the most important task is to ensure that the programme will continue to provide food to poor and needy EU citizens also after 2014", said European Parliament's rapporteur MEP Czesław Adam Siekierski (EPP).
