The context

Seven million. That is the number of people in France who have to resort to food aid. Among those affected is a large number of young people, in particular students who are increasingly finding themselves in a situation of food insecurity.

Since the onset of the Covid-19 crisis, one in two students believes they do not have enough to eat and many face difficulties feeding themselves in a balanced and affordable way.

How can we encourage the French presidential election candidates to incorporate concrete solutions for combating food insecurity into their manifestos? 

The objective

Through Survifood, Greenpeace France hopes to engage presidential election candidates and trigger a reaction among the general public, particularly the younger generation, to make them understand that food insecurity is not inevitable.

Solutions do exist and can be put in place, such as the food social security initiative in France or even subsidizing healthy and sustainable meals in universities for 1 euro.

A creative idea

An absurd situation deserves an absurd response

Survifood is a delivery service that delivers meals that are disgusting – for both your health and the planet. It’s a fake food delivery platform for youngsters, delivering revolting dishes at low prices. The company has an all-consuming commercial appetite and its business can be summed up in just a few words: “hunger justifies all means”. In reality, Survifood is a magnifying glass. It magnifies the reality faced by many young people in France, who not only struggle to feed themselves, but also have poor diets.

A fake start-up benefiting from a real 360° campaign

From 21 February until 10 April 2022, the faux delivery service Survifood was supported by a comprehensive social media and influencer campaign.

This campaign drew inspiration from the typical sort of communications used by famous food delivery service platforms and start-ups that continue to earn millions of euros every day.

What if we did the same, but this time to combat food insecurity? Survifood is a campaign based on an absurd, anticipated scenario that launched right in the middle of the election period.
