The Secours populaire de Capbreton committee and its Tarnos branch met in a general meeting on Thursday, May 16 to approve the 2023 accounts.

Jean-Marc Lesouef, secretary general of the Capbreton committee, assisted by Martine Castera and Patty Soulier, presented an assessment which highlighted the difficulties of the moment. Martine Castera, treasurer of the Capbreton committee, presented the 2023 annual accounts, marked by a very significant increase in meals distributed: 350 people welcomed this year by the committee for food aid and 58,128 meals given by the committee. An increase of 63% compared to 2022, or 22,600 additional meals in 2023, which resulted in a deficit of 40,000 euros over the year. This despite the mobilization of 103 volunteers who are multiplying actions to increase revenue: solidarity bazaar (Bric à Brac), solidarity clothing area, unpacking, etc.

Solidarity spaces

It should be remembered that the Solidarity Spaces are open to all several afternoons per week. Knowing that 66% of people received have less than 5 euros to live on per week, excluding food expenses, reducing the quantities donated seems difficult to envisage.

The year 2023 is also marked by momentum and initiatives from volunteers: success of the sewing workshop, the day of those forgotten during the holidays, access to leisure, culture and sports, administrative assistance, etc. Despite the positives regarding 2023, there is also concern about the sustainability of our system. But Secours populaire remains an association that is still very motivated to continue to help people in need.
