School meal price cut by €2 per child


Eating at the canteen is to cost a lot less for thousands of primary school children.

The price of a meal can vary between €3 and €4.50, according to school and region, but the government is subsidising every meal to the tune of €2 as part of the fight against poverty.

This programme will be set up in 10,000 communes.

Eight regions are also trialling free breakfasts for children, notably in Toulouse and Montpellier.
