It is more precisely in Buenos Aires and particularly in Villa Soldati, one of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods of the city, that Margarita Barrientos has decided to act; by giving access to meals to 2,500 people in great difficulty everyday, but also through others facilities: a shelter for victims of domestic violence, a nursery, a center dedicated to the elderly, a library and many other infrastructures. While working with "Red Solidaria", an association dedicated to support homeless people, Margarita Barrientos tries to reduce social inequalities
There is also a historic partnership between the Maragarita Barrientos Fundación and Carrefour Argentina. The brand has organised several food collection campaigns and toy drives since 2012. In August 2017, Carrefour will launch the second edition of its "Una ayuda que alimenta" (A help that feeds) campaignin order to encourage customers to support the foundation by buying Carrefour products, as while you purchase one product among the references of the brand, one meal is delivered. In 2016, the first campaign enabled to fund 1 year of food for the solidarity restaurant "Los Piletines", so to speak 650 000 meals.
In 2017, the Carrefour Foundation committed to financing the overall budget of a food truck to deliver hot and balanced meals to homeless people, which represents €74,415.
