For the past 10 years, Carrefour has been working with the French NGO « Les Restos du Cœurs » during their national food collection campaign. Everywhere in France, Carrefour employees join the volunteers in Carrefour stores. It allowed the association to gather 2100 tons of products last year.
In 2018, 1800 Carrefour stores were involved in this campaign! On Friday 9th and Saturday 10th March, the NGO collected 2000 tons of food products to be redistributed to vulnerable people, helped by Carrefour employees. Alexandre Bompard, CEO of Carrefour Group and Foundation Carrefour President also took part to this national campaign. He went to Paris-Saint Marcel Market store on Saturday to acknowledge the great involvement of the volunteers and thank the association for its daily work.
The Carrefour Foundation supports « Les Restos du Cœur », for instance with 115 000€ granted in 2017 for the acquisition of 8 refrigerated vehicles. To fulfill its mission of tackling exclusion of poverty, the Foundation also financed arestaurant to train the unemployed in the French region Côtes d’Armor.
