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 sustainable food supply for all” looks at Dijon Métropole' strategy to ensure access to quality and sustainable food for all citizens and to promote food solidarity on its territory.
Dijon Metropolis is the capital of the newly created Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region. Located on strategic rail and motorway routes, Dijon boasts double recognition from UNESCO, for the Climats du vignoble de Bourgogne (Climates of Burgundy’s Vineyards) and also for the repas gastronomique des Français (Gastronomic Meal of France). The city’s International Gastronomy and Wine Centre is currently under construction.
 
Dijon Metropolis has placed its sustainable food supply strategy at the heart of its ecological transition. Beyond issues related to the reduction of GHG emissions, the protection of biodiversity, the reduction of the consumption of natural resources (water, energy, arable soil, etc.), the public authorities’ elected representatives have decided to ensure that ALL consumer-citizens-are involved in the transition process. About 50 private and public organizations brought together by the public authority proposed 24 actions with a budget of €46 m to rise to the challenge of offering 400,000 inhabitants a better food supply.
 
This strategy includes vulnerable populations through the expertise and actions carried out for many years by the City of Dijon CCAS (Municipal Social Action Centre). Dijon’s social action represents a budget of €9.3 m (CCAS) to provide aid for disadvantaged populations (15% of the population).

The factsheet “A collective regional commitment to a sustainable, inclusive food supply” PAT (Plan Alimentaire Territorial aka “local food project”) of the metropolis of Metz.
Committed since 2010 to the development of peri-urban agriculture, the Metz metropolis continues to carry out an ambitious, responsible, agricultural and food transition, centred on the needs and well-being of each inhabitant, and respect for the region’s ecological resources.
 
Alongside its Town Centre District and its Centre Communal d’Action Sociale (Municipal Social Action Centre), the Metz Metropolis fully embraces diet and the food supply, a crucial issue in the 21st century. Most of all, it focuses on environ-mental and climate issues, concern for the most vulnerable and the aspiration to promote sustainable economic growth, respectful of resources and biodiversity, beneficial to all stakeholders, without exception.
 
The metropolitan strategy regarding an inclusive food supply is designed around four clear objectives:
 
  • growth in the region’s capacity to produce and process food,
  • the structuring of the supply network for the consumer region,
  • the promotion of "field to plate” practices with the least possible impact on natural resources,
  • a guarantee that everyone has access to a beneficial, reasonably priced diet.

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 “Access to a balanced diet for everyone whatever their status” presents the measures implemented by the Clermont-Ferrand metropolitan area in favor of solidarity and education for a balanced nutrition.
Offering healthy, balanced meals to people on low incomes, students and children while at the same time developing use of local producers and raising awareness of food waste and how to combat it, remain a priority for the City of Clermont-Ferrand.
 
Moreover, this approach has been adopted as a key policy strategy in the City and the Centre Communal d'Action Sociale (CCAS) (Municipal Social Action Centre)’s educational project.
Since 2016, the City of Clermont-Ferrand has implemented solidarity prices for instance, in order to enable access to school meals for vulnerable populations.

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 “towards a healthy food supply for all” presents the action plan of the European Metropolis of Lille to reduce food inequalities and ensure food well-being for all on its territory, while respecting the ecosystem.
The European Metropolis of Lille (MEL) is an EPCI (French Public Inter-Municipal Cooperation Establishment) created by the French law of 31 December 1966. It is a vast region which today consists of 90 municipalities and more than a million inhabitants. It also benefits from a strategic cross-border position.
 
The subject of the food supply is particularly representative of the characteristics and issues in a territory where almost half the land is agricultural (28,000 ha). Agricultural and agri-food is the third largest sector in the metropolitan economy (9,500 jobs and turnover of more than 128 million euros). The metropolis contains more than 1.2 million of consumers who should all have a healthy, sustainable food supply.
 
However, the worrying reality is that there are major disparities in the food supply in the territory. Food inequalities reflect this social segregation and the territory’s heterogeneity: 50,554 people receive food aid with 9,965,000 meals distributed per month.
 
The Lille Metropolis Territorial Food Project is divided into 4 main strategic directions, translated into an action program:
 
1. Contributing to a healthy food supply for inhabitants and visi-tors
2.Developing an agricultural and food economy anchored in the metropolitan territory that respects its ecosystem
3. Co-constructing a metropolis with a sustainable, user-friendly and solidarity-based food supply
4. Making everyone a part of the Territorial Food Project
