This List of beneficiaries is not yet completed. It will certainly be the subject of some updates. A beneficiary of more than one eligible device will only receivea one-time payment of that meal check.
How much is this emergency food aid?
The expected amount for this grocery check is 100 euros per household. To this sum is added an additional 50 euros per dependent child.
When this amount is confirmed, a couple raising two children can get 200 euros. The latter represent the 100 euros for their household and the 50 euros for each of their children. The sums initially announced for this device have therefore fallen. First, households should receive 150 euros per child had to bring 100 euros per household.

Overall, this device would cost the state one billion euros. It is lower than the 2020 Covid premium. The latter was offered to 4 million households in France. But to the extent that this emergency aid would hit the 9 million French as planned, the cost is likely to come closer.
When is the grocery check scheduled to be paid?
The food check was first mentioned in December 2020. Emmanuel Macron informed him during the Citizen’s Climate Convention.
The implementation of this is known a long discussion within the executive branch. In July 2021, Parliament finally voted to introduce a meal voucher. However, since the implementing measures have not yet been voted on, it is difficult to set a precise date. However, the payment of the permanent aid is planned for 2023.
What about this emergency food aid that was promised at the start of the September 2022 school year?
Parliament did not reveal a specific date. This emergency device is not included in the purchasing power calculation. Its deployment follows a post-credit approval application decree envisaged in this summer’s finance law amendment.
Who is responsible for distributing the meal voucher: the CCAS or the CAF?
The organization responsible for this global distribution is not clearly defined. However, Bruno Le Maire mentioned the possibility of entrusting this task to the community social centers or the CCAS. The latter distribute social benefits in the form of financial aid or benefits in kind to those most in need. They take care of precarious households. Included 5 million beneficiaries could easily touch that food check. The citizens’ convention also supports this idea.
CAF does not distribute food aid on a large scale. But a few cases offamily allowances can take on this food aid at the local level.
How do I apply for a meal voucher?
The government has not yet revealed the exact procedures to be followed for this device. The organization that will take care of the distribution has not yet been determined. Beneficiaries cannot start yet the necessary steps. The form of this emergency aid is also not yet known.
Which locations are eligible for payment of the meal voucher?
The government hasn’t spoken yet to this topic. Because they are working “on a higher-quality food check in order to gain access to organic, fresh and regional products”, as government spokeswoman Olivia Grégoire promised on June 29, 2022.
According to this, the food check is intended to make it possible to purchase the virtuous products provided for by the Egalim Law. Therefore, beneficiaries should can buy fresh produce Quality (ie organic and labeled products).
