Funding of refrigerated trucks and cold storage rooms for Restos du Cœur
“Les restos du Coeur” were founded in 1985 by Coluche, a French humorist, to support people in the most vulnerable situations. The association works with volunteers to promote the economic and social reinsertion of homeless people, in particular by distributing free meals.
Last year, Restos du Cœur alone distributed almost 136 million meals to 960 000 people in need in France. Refrigerated trucks play an important role in this endeavour by providing the missing link between the donor stores and the distribution centres of Restos du Cœur. Fondation Carrefour is well aware of the issues involved and is pleased to co-finance the purchase of such equipment.
