Faurecia helps Les Restos du Cœur in its 30th annual food drive
The campaign ultimately netted 8 tons of non-perishable food items thanks to the efforts of 13,500 Faurecia employees in France. The Group’s sites also hosted a number of events (raffles, races, breakfasts, cake sales of employee-made items) that generated additional funds used to donate food to the disadvantaged. In addition, the Group decided to back up the Group’s commitment with a financial contribution of €40,000, to match this show of solidarity from the Faurecia workforce.
The food drive in France can trace its roots to the US-based FUELS program (Faurecia Unites with Employees for Local Service), which was launched in 2010 as a way to mobilize employees behind local food banks.
In France, Faurecia opted to pledge its support for Les Restos du Cœur, a famous non-profit organization, as part of the first FUELS campaign conducted outside the United States; Faurecia sites in Spain followed suit with their own FUELS drive in early December.
In North America, where the FUELS initiative has been in place since 2010, Faurecia holds an annual food drive at all of its sites in Canada, the United States and Mexico. In the process, Faurecia’s North American operations have collected enough food since 2010 to provide 3.5 million meals to impoverished members of the community.
Les Restos du Cœur launched its 30th annual food drive on November 24, 2014. In 2013, 67,600 Restos du Cœur volunteers served 130 million meals to a million of France’s neediest residents.
