The two Auchan Retail France foundations make common cause: The Auchan Youth Foundation under the auspices of the Fondation de France, is aimed at a young audience. The corporate foundation ''the taste of sharing '' targets projects related to feeding. It is therefore quite natural that they will accompany the fragile youth by supporting associative projects aimed at improving their health, their well-being.
