Fight poverty in the Grand-Duchy thanks to social grocery stores

Fondation Pax Christi

Support the access and the development of the “sozial Buttek” in Luxembourg


Poverty is a problem that affects even the richest plays like Luxembourg. This project helps the poorest by supporting social grocery stores run by Caritas and the Luxembourg Red Cross.


These structures offer their beneficiaries food and everyday products for a modest financial contribution. Disadvantaged people thus see their purchasing power increase while having access to quality products. Grocery stores also serve as a meeting point to discuss where everyone's dignity is respected.


The “sozial Buttek” stores have several objectives :


- fighting against poverty

- stregthening solidarity and social ties 

- promoting a balanced nutrition 

- fighting agaisnt food waste 


In the past few years, several hundred people have benefited from this program and new grocery store openings are already planned.
