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 “a local, sustainable food supply, and most importantly with everyone and for everyone” presents the PAT (Plan Alimentaire Territorial aka “local food project”) of Nantes Metropolis for an inclusive and sustainable food.
 
Nantes Metropolis has been committed to a regional food project “for a local, sustainable food supply, accessible to all” since 2015. While the concept of sustainability applied to food naturally integrates a social component, the organizations mobilized in the project prioritized the development of an inclusive project, "for everyone and with everyone", with a strong social and cultural dimension. In other words, combining pleasure with health, gastronomy with accessibility, and festive occasions with responsibility.
 
As a result, the Nantes Metropolis PAT (Regional Food Project) is focused on its inhabitants, and after 6 months of collective production with all the organizations involved in the food system, 71 quantified objectives and policy goals were determined2 for 2020/30.
 
They concern the production system and the improvement of practices, the supply and low-carbon logistics, the fight against food waste, innovation and experimentation, education and the raising of awareness, living together harmoniously and outreach, and of course, accessibility and health. The efficiency, resilience and sustainability of the food system are at the heart of the project, without ever forgetting the stakeholders, who all play a role as “proactive responsible consumers”.

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.

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 « A sustainable food supply for all policy » presents the agro ecology and food policy implemented by Montpellier Mediterranée Metropolis.  
Framed by the Montagne Noire and Cévennes mountain ranges, at the foot of this vast amphitheatre overlooking the Mediterranean sea, Montpellier Méditerranée Metropolis has established itself as an attractive European capital. However, more than 18% of the inhabitants are currently living below the poverty threshold, childhood obesity is increasing, especially in social priority districts and the issue of living together harmoniously is more of a challenge than ever. It is of crucial importance today that everyone has access to sufficient food and eats a balanced diet. 
 
Since 2015, the Montpellier Méditerranée Metropolis (3M) has undertaken a collaborative approach to the development of a proactive agro-ecological and food policy, based on five objectives:
 
•             facilitating access for all to a local, healthy food supply
•             supporting the agricultural and food sector economy and jobs
•             preserving the landscape heritage and natural resources
•             reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change
•             encouraging social cohesion.

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 “A sustainable food supply for all” looks at Dijon Métropole' strategy to ensure access to quality and sustainable food for all citizens and to promote food solidarity on its territory.
Dijon Metropolis is the capital of the newly created Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region. Located on strategic rail and motorway routes, Dijon boasts double recognition from UNESCO, for the Climats du vignoble de Bourgogne (Climates of Burgundy’s Vineyards) and also for the repas gastronomique des Français (Gastronomic Meal of France). The city’s International Gastronomy and Wine Centre is currently under construction.
 
Dijon Metropolis has placed its sustainable food supply strategy at the heart of its ecological transition. Beyond issues related to the reduction of GHG emissions, the protection of biodiversity, the reduction of the consumption of natural resources (water, energy, arable soil, etc.), the public authorities’ elected representatives have decided to ensure that ALL consumer-citizens-are involved in the transition process. About 50 private and public organizations brought together by the public authority proposed 24 actions with a budget of €46 m to rise to the challenge of offering 400,000 inhabitants a better food supply.
 
This strategy includes vulnerable populations through the expertise and actions carried out for many years by the City of Dijon CCAS (Municipal Social Action Centre). Dijon’s social action represents a budget of €9.3 m (CCAS) to provide aid for disadvantaged populations (15% of the population).

The factsheet “reinforcing adoption of behaviour to develop a sustainable food supply” presents the Grand Nancy Metropolis food strategy to ensure a dignified and sustainable access to quality food for all.
At the heart of the Sillon Lorrain European metropolitan centre, in a mainly rural environment for its population of 433,788 inhabitants, Grand Nancy Metropolis coordinates a wide range of initiatives relating to the food supply that affect multiple territorial issues such as economic growth, agriculture, the environment, social justice and health.
 
The objective is to rethink the metropolitan food supply strategy in order to respond to current and future societal issues. To achieve this, the Grand Nancy Metropolis is taking action for:
 
  • access to a healthy diet, particularly for disadvantaged people,
  • the maintenance of peri-urban farming, and the encouragement of new supply channels,
  • the promotion of practices that have the least possible impact on natural resources in particular the fight against food waste,
  • the development of a PAT (Projet Alimentaire Territorial -Territorial Food Project) beyond its territory

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.
