As of 13 February, the Ville de Paris is to provide meals for the needy at its own staff canteen in

Quai des Clestins (in the 4me arrondissement). In collaboration with the association Les Restos du Cur, the council will initially provide 250 seated meals from 19.30 to 21.30 five days a week. Last year the Ville de Paris gave 700,000 to associations providing food for the needy as part of its welfare programme. Since 2003 two similar restaurants have been operating under the auspices of Les Restos du Coeur at Massna, in the 13me, and Porte de la Villette, in the 19me thanks to city council funding. The success of the project will be evaluated in April 2006.
