This next weekend Les Restaurants du Coeur are organizing a special additional « collecte », which is a food collection in various supermarkets. Clients are invited to buy some useful foods (rice, pasta, etc) to be donated to the renowned charity upon exit.
This winter, with a 15% inflation rate on basic foods, Resto du Coeur has seen a huge increase in the number of families helped on a weekly basis thanks to food donations.
You can also help them by donating money directly on https://dons.restosducoeur.org/particulier/~mon-don?_cv=1
Les Restaurants du Coeur is one of France’s most well-known charity, created in the early 1980’s by late comedian Coluche to reduce hunger and poverty in the country. Unfortunately it has grown each year and seems ever more needed in a country which counts hundreds of thousands of people below poverty line.
