The Intermarché food distribution group has decided to help students financially suffering from the health crisis by offering a voucher of 10 euros for a week from 20 euros of purchase.
Intermarché offers vouchers to students in difficulty
” We continue to be #charities faced with the consequences of # COVID19 “. The French group Intermarché has decided to make a gesture for the students strongly impacted by the health crisis. Thus, the Musketeers announced in a press release published on Monday, February 1, 2021, that from Tuesday February 2 to Monday February 8, 2021, students would receive a voucher of 10 euros from 20 euros spent.
To take advantage of this offer, the Intermarché press release states that the group “ will offer a voucher of 10 euros from 20 euros spent, to all students with a loyalty card and with their student card “. However, if the distribution of these vouchers lasts only one week, the beneficiary students will be able to spend the precious sesame within two weeks.
The decline in the purchasing power of students at the heart of the Intermarché operation
The Intermarché operation is part of a financially unstable period for students. The president of Intermarché, Vincent Bronsard, specifies in the press release the reasons for this action towards young people in difficulty: ” Since the start of this health crisis, Intermarché has mobilized alongside the various economic players: French producers, traders, caregivers, etc. Today, it is with the students that we have chosen to act. We know the difficulties they encounter, and it seems essential to us, to our extent, to be able to support them by allowing them to increase their shopping budget. “.
Intermarché’s action towards students will therefore be coupled for a week with the measures put in place by the government, which allow students to benefit from two meals at one euro per day at the Crous.
