The aim of ASEB is to provide food aid to students living insecure situations. The Covid-19 pandemic has made many students very vulnerable financially and mentally.
Queen Mathilde had the opportunity to tour the premises and meet the grocery store volunteers as well as student beneficiaries.
Every Wednesday, the Solidarithèque Project provides food baskets for students made up of a variety of products, sold at a price of 4 Euros.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
