Solidarity is being set up in Brittany to help students, silent victims of the health crisis.

A few days ago, the regional council urgently released an envelope of 500,000 euros, paid to the CROUS, to allow the supply of foodstuffs to the four solidarity grocery stores present on the Rennes and Brest campuses.

A pillar of the Breton economy, the agri-food industry also responds to the call for generosity launched to deal with student precariousness.

Heavyweight in the sector, the Le Gouessant cooperative has just donated eight tonnes of potatoes from its Terres de Breizh brand to the Crous de Rennes and Vannes.

The vegetables, packaged in 2.5 kg bags, will then be distributed free of charge to students on the Rennes, Saint-Brieuc, Lannion, Brest and Vannes campuses.

The first deliveries will take place on Thursday on Breton campuses with an operation that will be repeated during the month of March, specifies the cooperative group.
