A first project supported in North America

For the first time, the Veolia Foundation will be supporting a project in North America.

The Selection Committee meeting on April 3, 2007 decided to support a project led by the non-profit organization "Northern Illinois Food Bank", which distributes over 12,000 metric tons of food a year to people living under the poverty threshold in the suburbs of Chicago.

Thanks to the Foundation grant, this well-known US food bank will be able to add to the flotilla of small refrigerated trucks used to collect fresh products donated by producers, distributors and restaurants.
