To combat food insecurity, the University of Bordaux and its partners have taken several initiatives.
Les Petits Paniers Campus ('Little Campus Baskets' / in French) distributes local, seasonal fruit and vegetable baskets delivered on Bordeaux campuses for 5€.
The Comptoir d'Aliénor (in French) offers food and other products at prices 60% below market price.
To take advantage of these prices, you must apply to the Atena Federation to become a beneficiary.
The public health crisis has increased food insecurity in the student population.
That is why the University of Bordeaux benefits from the help of local partners such as Linkee (in French) or the Atena Federation (in French) for the free distribution of foodstuffs for students most at-risk.
If you are struggling, especially financially, there are solutions.
The university offers a wide range of very local, diversified (with vegetarian and vegan menus, for example) and affordable (from 4€ to 10€) food trucks, including on certain outlying sites.
For opening hours and new products, follow the Student Life Centre (BVE) Facebook page or check the relevant signs on your campus.
