The factsheet “Food democracy: a sustainable food supply is an element of citizenship” presents the food strategy of Strasbourg Eurometropolis.
 
In 2008, an awareness of climate issues oriented the territorial project towards the creation of a sustainable metropolis, in which agriculture as an economic activity contributes to the development of the natural heritage and meets the territory’s food requirements.
 
Support for various forms of agriculture (professional/amateur, traditional/innovative) and the optimisation of their complementarity enables progress towards a resilient food system that takes into account concerns relating to the balance and the quality of the supply. In this context, the City and Eurometropolis of Strasbourg in partnership with a range of organizations has implemented actions based on a goal of food democracy.

The factsheet “The promotion of short agricultural supply chains for better food solidarity” presents the food strategy of Saint-Etienne Metropolis.
 
Agriculture is an important feature of the Saint-Etienne Metropolis, occupying 38% of the territory’s area (75% including forest) and providing a living for more than 1,000 farms, of which 600 are larger than 10 hectares. 38% of farms in the Metropolis sell their produce in short supply chains (19% within the Loire département). This agricultural production offers a wide range of local farm produce. Processing of farm products is relatively substantial and varied (cheese, yogurt, meat, charcuterie (cooked pork products), fruit, vegetables, honey, etc.); dairy processing is the most widespread.
 
The Saint-Etienne Metropolis conducts an agricultural policy characterized by the development of local supply chains and environmentally friendly farming, and the preservation of agricultural land. It has implemented several food solidarity initiatives, including:
 
•    ensuring that farmers in the territory are able to earn a fair income
•    promoting healthy, sustainable eating habits by raising children's awareness and using good quality local products in the preparation of school meals.
 
This work is supplemented by the approach proposed in the PEEDD (plan d’éducation à l’écocitoyenneté et au développement durable, or the Eco-citizen and Sustainable Development Educational Plan) which aims to raise children’s awareness of these two cross-cutting themes. In this framework, intervention modules are offered to primary schools on the subjects of "Eat Locally!" and the fight against food waste.

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 “Building on a transversal approach and the commitment and complementarity of those involved to enable access for all to a healthy, sustainable food supply” presents the food strategy of Toulouse Metropolis.
The Toulouse metropolis is a very attractive region, in the heart of a highly agricultural area (164,000 jobs, France’s largest region for organic production, 20% of farms selling via short supply chains). Consequently, the Metropolis’ 760,000 inhabitants should have easy access to good quality local produce.
 
In the framework of its Projet Agricole et Alimentaire Métropolitain (Agricultural and Metropolitan Food Project), Toulouse Metropolis proposes to coordinate and strengthen actions to develop organic agricultural production, a sustain-able food supply in canteens and the structuring of local supply channels to enable access for all to a healthy, sustainable food supply.
 
In this way, awareness-raising actions and convenient access to a local, sustainable food supply, are accompanied by initiatives to combat food insecurity, such as the deployment of shared gardens, the linking of the producer’s MIN (whole-sale market of national interest) and food aid associations, and the organization of the Familles à alimentation positive (Positive Food Family) challenge in partnership with the social centres, involving families in social priority districts.

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 “A collective regional commitment to a sustainable, inclusive food supply” PAT (Plan Alimentaire Territorial aka “local food project”) of the metropolis of Metz.
Committed since 2010 to the development of peri-urban agriculture, the Metz metropolis continues to carry out an ambitious, responsible, agricultural and food transition, centred on the needs and well-being of each inhabitant, and respect for the region’s ecological resources.
 
Alongside its Town Centre District and its Centre Communal d’Action Sociale (Municipal Social Action Centre), the Metz Metropolis fully embraces diet and the food supply, a crucial issue in the 21st century. Most of all, it focuses on environ-mental and climate issues, concern for the most vulnerable and the aspiration to promote sustainable economic growth, respectful of resources and biodiversity, beneficial to all stakeholders, without exception.
 
The metropolitan strategy regarding an inclusive food supply is designed around four clear objectives:
 
  • growth in the region’s capacity to produce and process food,
  • the structuring of the supply network for the consumer region,
  • the promotion of "field to plate” practices with the least possible impact on natural resources,
  • a guarantee that everyone has access to a beneficial, reasonably priced diet.

The factsheet “Encouraging local agricultural sectors for a healthy, accessible food supply” outlines The Projet Alimentaire Métroplitain (Metropolitan Food Project) of Caen Normandy metropolitan hub.
The Caen territory lies between land and sea, at the intersection of an agglomeration with a high level of services and land that is almost exclusively devoted to farming. The grain plateau coexists with cattle and horse farms while traditional market gardening activities tend to occupy the area behind the coastline. The historical and natural heritage takes the form of a network of towns and villages structured around the Orne river. Today, these geographical features allow a diversifica-tion of agricultural sectors with the close involvement of farmers, public authorities and associations in food issues.
 
The Caen Normandy Metropolis Projet alimentaire territorial (PAT) (“territorial food project”, a French initiative to reinforce local agriculture) has highlighted the territory’s response to the population’s requirements in terms of good quality locally produced food. Local authorities are now involved in the structuring of new economic sectors, that are very promising in terms of local jobs and immediate benefits for inhabitants.

The factsheet “A territory that embraces a sustainable, responsible and mutually supportive food supply” presents the food strategy implemented on the territory of Tours Metropolis.
Since the Renaissance, the city of Tours, capital of the Touraine region, has been considered to be a land of human-ism offering a good quality of life. Known as “the garden of France”, in recent years, it has been focusing its efforts on defending and promoting culinary crops in all their forms.
This takes the form of financial support for associations involved in the fight against food insecurity (€220,000 of subsidies per year).
 
Part of the grant paid to the CCAS enables the latter to help families to obtain better food through work-shops and optional social assistance, accompanied by two significant measures: food aid through support cheques (nearly €200,000 annually) and aid with school meals for the most disadvantaged families that gives children access to lunch at a reduced cost (€0.64). In 2018, this assistance benefited 1,774 children (cost: nearly €500,000).
