Leclerc launches an aid campaign for precarious students
After the announcement of Intermarché and its ten-euro vouchers offered to students, it is the turn of Leclerc to launch its aid campaign for students financially weakened by the health crisis. Michel-Édouard Leclerc explained on BFMTV, Thursday February 4, 2021, that the group was studying the best way to set up these baskets at a lower cost.
The maximum price of the basket has been set at 3 euros, but the latter could be less expensive for students. Michel-Édouard Leclerc explains that this initiative tends to respond to the government’s desire to allow students to eat properly: “ The President of the Republic wanted young people to be able to eat cheaply while canteens and university restaurants are closed. We are working on a student basket, the cheapest on the market and (…) of high quality “. The basket should be available by the end of February.
Initiatives are multiplying to help students
In recent weeks, government and private initiatives have multiplied to help students in difficulty. The health crisis has had a strong impact on their purchasing power and some are struggling to eat. The Abbé Pierre Foundation estimates in its study on poor housing in France that 58% of students with a paid activity lost it at the time of the first confinement and 37% have not found it since.
On January 21, the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron announced the establishment of two meals a day at one euro per unit for students. An offer called ” U-ticket »And which until now was reserved for scholarship students.
