Un territoire au service d’une alimentation durable, responsable et solidaire
Fort du soutien du Ministère de l’Europe et des affaires étrangères, France urbaine, en partenariat avec RESOLIS, a décidé de réaliser une étude intitulée « Les villes face aux défis de la précarité alimentaire ». Celle-ci rassemble 21 contributions de métropoles, grandes villes et agglomérations, qui permettent d’identifier, à travers des initiatives concrètes, de quelle manière elles agissent contre la précarité alimentaire.

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 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).
