associative kitchens and the sharing of harvests
Article written by
Sharing a meal or the fruits of its garden, these are initiatives to create the link that journalist Valérie Heurtel tells us about on the set of 13 Heures.
Thursday June 16, journalist Valérie Hurtel was on the 13 Hours set to talk about the “little canteens” in Croix, near Lille (North). “These are associative kitchens, often installed in a former restaurant. It is a place open to all where the inhabitants of the district meet to prepare together and share a meal. We eat there for cheap, around ten euros. Everyone gives what they can. What’s nice is that you meet all kinds of people there: young people, retirees, the lawyer, the plumber. It creates a bond in the neighborhood, it allows those who are alone to meet their neighborss,” she explains. The concept was launched in Lyon. There are about ten in France. The last one has just opened in Grenoble (Isere).
Another dating accelerator is the garden. “To share your harvests and meet people today, there are platforms. It’s cherry season, if you’re overwhelmed with fruit, offer them to your neighbors. We went to see on Fruit and food. Look at Jouy-en-Josas (Yvelines), Fabrice sells rhubarb, 2.36 euros per kilo. It’s twice cheaper than in the shops, I bought some yesterday for more than 5 euros“, says the journalist.
