Better Eating Festival in Paris leaves us hungry – Liberation

Food, the recipe that will change everythingcase

Between vague communication and initiatives for the happy, the Parisian festival, which runs from June 25 to Saturday July 2, has a lot to reconsider its copy.

In Ile-de-France, obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes or malnutrition are on the rise, and only 25% of adults and 23% of children aged 6-10 consume five fruits and vegetables a day. So, when we saw the program of the Good Food Festival, which runs from June 25 to Saturday in Paris, we told ourselves that such an initiative is anything but a luxury. Faced with an announcement about “The market of local producers, delicacies and festive events throughout Paris”, our little heart went crazy. What to choose between a patisserie for children, cooking with regenerated vegetables or visiting the Ferme de Paris? Only on earth, alas! the reality is more mixed, even completely blurred. Between workshops in schools (reserved, and this is normal, only for schoolchildren) and traders seeking to popularize their concepts or their products, we have mixed. What does the “anti-waste grocery store open day” in the 9th century bring us, open the rest of the year? Or the opening of existing enterprises, such as Kelbongu in Stalingrad, which are already well established? Or Amap kiosks scattered here and there looking for recruits?

Dispersed Initiatives

Maybe we didn’t do the right thing…
