MEDFEL, a partner of A.N.D.E.S. (French national association for the development of social and solidarity grocery stores) since 2012.
Founded in April 2000, for the past 14 years A.N.D.E.S. has been offering innovative solutions aimed at providing healthy, affordable food to vulnerable people who receive food aid.
A.N.D.E.S. makes available in grocery stores affordable quality foods, in particular fresh fruit and vegetables from its assisted employment schemes. It also sets up support initiatives such as cookery workshops and tasting sessions.
As the national network for social and solidarity grocery stores, the purpose of A.N.D.E.S. is to federate and advise these bodies and support both their development and sustainability. The principle by which these stores operate is to combat exclusion without encouraging reliance on charity, respectful of people's liberty and promoting their long-term integration into the job market.
It is within this context that the range of initiatives being implemented by A.N.D.E.S. requires a supply of fresh, quality produce for its network of stores.
