With the support of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, France urbaine, in partnership with RESOLIS, decided to carry out a study entitled "Cities facing the challenges of food insecurity". This document gathers 21 contributions from metropolises, large cities and agglomerations, which make it possible to identify, through concrete initiatives, how they act against food insecurity.
 
The factsheet "local production as a lever to fight food insecurity" enhances the experience of the PAT (Plan Alimentaire Territorial aka “local food project”) of the metropolis Aix-Marseille Provence.
The Aix-Marseille-Provence Metropolis is unique. The largest metropolitan area in France, twice the size of that of London, it incorporates agricultural, urban and industrial spaces within the same territory. An attractive region and a magnet for tourists, it is a leading export gateway thanks to its port, which is the largest in France. A young Metropolis, it is conscious of the need to protect its natural areas from fast-growing urbanisation.
Its natural and renewable resources (sun, sea, wind, arable land, water, terroir) represent major assets and the engineer-ing sector is present to optimize their use.
 

With the core strategic aim of promoting sustainable food production, the Metropolis signed a PAT (Projet Alimentaire Territorial - or local food project, a French initiative to reinforce local agriculture) The PAT identifies good practices implemented across the region with the primary goal of facilitating their dissemination

The factsheet “For a responsible, solidarity approach to school meals ”outlines the actions implemented by the urban council of Amiens Metropolis, in response to the priorities set out in the National Food Policy.
At the heart of a rich agricultural region, Amiens has expanded on both sides of the wide Somme valley and around the confluences with the Avre and the Selle rivers It presents an attractive living environment characterized by an abundance of green spaces and gardens. Presenting itself as a city that cares about the environment, Amiens has made the link between the city and nature one of the levers of its territorial development project.
 
In the context of priority actions for the 2014/2019 period, several objectives were set:
  • Encourage short supply chains participating in the development of the local organic and conventional agriculture sector and, through this measure, the relaunching of food markets to support local producers.
  •  Integrate specific criteria such as the time between picking and reception of the product.
  •  Offer educational tours of food production sites in such a way as to maintain a local supply offer for public contracts.
  •  Give preference to food that is a produced by organic agriculture or which carries other quality certification (Red Label for example).
  •  Combat food waste.

The factsheet “towards a healthy food supply for all” presents the action plan of the European Metropolis of Lille to reduce food inequalities and ensure food well-being for all on its territory, while respecting the ecosystem.
The European Metropolis of Lille (MEL) is an EPCI (French Public Inter-Municipal Cooperation Establishment) created by the French law of 31 December 1966. It is a vast region which today consists of 90 municipalities and more than a million inhabitants. It also benefits from a strategic cross-border position.
 
The subject of the food supply is particularly representative of the characteristics and issues in a territory where almost half the land is agricultural (28,000 ha). Agricultural and agri-food is the third largest sector in the metropolitan economy (9,500 jobs and turnover of more than 128 million euros). The metropolis contains more than 1.2 million of consumers who should all have a healthy, sustainable food supply.
 
However, the worrying reality is that there are major disparities in the food supply in the territory. Food inequalities reflect this social segregation and the territory’s heterogeneity: 50,554 people receive food aid with 9,965,000 meals distributed per month.
 
The Lille Metropolis Territorial Food Project is divided into 4 main strategic directions, translated into an action program:
 
1. Contributing to a healthy food supply for inhabitants and visi-tors
2.Developing an agricultural and food economy anchored in the metropolitan territory that respects its ecosystem
3. Co-constructing a metropolis with a sustainable, user-friendly and solidarity-based food supply
4. Making everyone a part of the Territorial Food Project
