In 2017, the Secours Populaire Français has opened a center for food aid in the 13th arrondissement of Paris. Managed by Le Secours Populaire, this center redistributes the unsold or surplus products on a daily basis to families in need.
The anti-waste food aid center currently hosts 20 families per week. It makes it possible to respond to the increasing demands for food aid, to the constraints of certain groups in particularly vulnerable people such as homeless people, families housed in hotels, precarious students, to valorize the unsold, and to better distribute the aid geographically Food in Paris.
Food aid consists solely of fresh and unsold products, produced by retailers or surplus producers in the Ile-de-France region.
The project was supported by the Carrefour Foundation, as well as by the Paris council and the 13th arrondissement council.
On 30 May 2017, the inauguration of the food aid center took place in the presence of Jérôme Bédier (President of the Carrefour Foundation and Deputy Managing Director of the Carrefour Group) and Xavier Emmanuelli (Founder of the Samusocial and administrator of the Carrefour Foundation) .
