“Charte entreprises et quartiers”: solidarity restaurant in priority areas of Avion

Based in a deprived area of Avion (Pas-de-Calais) close to Lens, the El Fouad association is running a solidarity restaurant serving meals for just €4.5. The restaurant, which offers employment to eight people on professional integration schemes, is being developed with the help of the Eiffage Foundation and Eiffage regional offices.

Based in Avion (Pas-de-Calais), in the priority neighbourhood of République, the El Fouad association organises various projects to promote social and professional integration: two solidarity grocery stores located in Avion and Sallaumines, a market garden – recycle/repair workshop, building renovation and vehicle rental for job seekers. 

It also runs a solidarity restaurant serving 70 meals a day for just €4.5, prepared by eight people on professional integration schemes. The restaurant is moving to new premises. The objective is to integrate more job seekers, serve more meals and develop a catering business.

The Eiffage Foundation is helping the project with financial support from the regional offices of Eiffage Energy, Construction and Infrastructures divisions. David Debonne, fellow master at Eiffage Construction, is providing local support.
