2012-08-10

The author was part of the "Alternative Management" third year programme in HEC in 2011-2012

Agoraé is a network of social groceries created in order to help students who have little money. There, the latter can buy quality food, for 20% of the price they are sold in mass-market retailing. Agoraé is also meant to be a place to live in. Indeed, each grocery has an adjacent room which welcomes various services dedicated to students : permanences by social workers, lawyers and psychologists, information and prevention, mutual aid and student solidarity solutions, access to associative and technical resources.
