Crossroads and La Tente des Glaneurs

Crossroads Festival renewed this year its partnership with la Tente des Glaneurs.

Since 2010, this non-profit organisation redistributes every sunday, bread, vegetables and flowers (what they call a “solidarity basket”) to people who have no access to usual food aid (single parent family, students, retired people, homeless…). How ? They gather food from the merchants on the market. This food or those flowers are intented to be trashed or considered as “out of standards” to be sold.

La Tente des glaneurs will feed the delegates on an cocktail aperitif made of gathered food saved from the trash. On the other hand, the Crossroads team was part of the volunteer staff on a mission on the Wazemmes market in Lille on Sunday 7th of July.
