Belgium, 2014-12-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — Between 17 November and 31 December, Carrefour Belgium has pledged to give its support to local associations. The “Clic Solidaire” (Give with a Click) operation helps local associations to organise food donations in the long term.
The “Clic Solidaire” operation
Carrefour hypermarkets work with local associations on a daily basis so that unsold stock can be distributed to the most needy in the neighbourhood. To do this as effectively as possible, these associations also need equipment, refrigeration facilities, vehicles etc. As a means of encouraging them, Carrefour hypermarkets and the Carrefour Foundation have launched the “Clic Solidaire” operation.
Essentially, working in partnership with a local association of its choice (that has some relationship with food banks), Carrefour hypermarkets submit a project to provide equipment as part of an initiative to get food aid to the most needy. Customers will then be able to go to www.clicsolidaire.be between 17 November and 31 December 2014 and vote for their favourite project.
Each of these projects will receive a donation. The project that gets the highest number of votes will receive €30,000, the next nine projects will each receive €10,000, and all the others will receive €2000.
