Les restaurants du coeur : pour qui et pourquoi ?
[Food Aid for the Poor or Social Support? Case Study on a Belgian Social Restaurant]
Many private non-profit organizations play an active role assisting the poor. Those organizations often benefit from government subsidies, which makes it important to assess the benefits of their programs. This paper provides a statistical analysis of the characteristics of the clients of a social restaurant providing free food in Namur, Belgium. The restaurant is successful in reaching very poor individuals. Yet many clients come less to satisfy their food needs than to socialize. The restaurant thus appears to contribute to the fight against social exclusion as much as to that against poverty per se.
