Donations and collections
Throughout the year, the Foundation relays food donation and collection campaigns using the Group’s retail expertise. This makes Carrefour the leading private-sector donor to Food Banks in France. In 2016, the accumulated donations made to various food aid organisations, worldwide, were equivalent to 142 million meals. The Foundation also offers logistics support, by transporting and storing food produce so that the cold chain can remain unbroken, through the purchase of refrigerated vehicles and cold storage rooms.
