Each year, “Les Epicuriales” helps “La Ronde des Quartiers de Bordeaux” to carry out a humanitarian action by supporting the actions of the association “For a Smile of Child” (PSE).

This association, which received the medal of the City of Bordeaux on the occasion of its 20 years of action for the most deprived children of Cambodia, was also distinguished in 2000 by the Human Rights Prize of the French Republic.

The documentary ” Les Pépites ”, released at the end of 2016, and acclaimed by more than 250,000 spectators, beautifully recounts the great human adventure of its founders with the sole aim: ” Those who have known the worst deserve excellence ”

Recognized as a charitable organization, it puts its energy at the service of many missions: food, medical care, support for families, protection centers, schooling, vocational training (hotels / restaurants, mechanics, hairdressing, maternal assistance, building trades, accounting , computer science, etc.), etc.

At the end of all these well-adapted courses, each year 400 young people find a job and thus participate in the recovery of their country. “From misery … to a job! Is not only a slogan, but the reality of the 6,500 young people supported by this association!

This year, the funds raised in Aquitaine will help support the vocational training programs, which enable every young person to realize their dream of life.

For a few years now, the association La Ronde des Quartiers de Bordeaux has been careful to place its events under the sign of respect for the environment. And the Epicuriales do not break the rule. Convinced by the sustainable development policies initiated by the public authorities, the members of the association are working in this direction with the mayor of Bordeaux. The latter is committed to maintaining the site and its surroundings in an exemplary state of cleanliness and managing the flows and discharges selectively.

The association also encourages restaurateurs and users to respect their environment by making use of the means at their disposal.
