In the winter of 1985, Europe’s fridges and grain silos are full. Yet bellies are empty and once more, people will die of cold and hunger …
With the help of a politician, people from Wallonia table a motion on poverty in Europe at the European Parliament in Strasburg. Unfortunately though, the idea isn’t favoured … … It does, however, appeal to one artist in France, a clown named Coluche (Michel Colucci), who raises his voice and calls out to the French people via the airwaves of Europe 1 on 26 September 1985.
The appeal is heard by students of the Solvay Business School. Artists, politicians, farmers and anonymous individuals move to action, together with journalists, supported by major retail groups. 21 December 1985 marks the official opening of the Resto du Cœur in Belgium.
