Since the start of the 2022 school year, the Crous de Bretagne has been accused of serving portions deemed insufficient in its university restaurants.

On October 28, “Union pirate”, the student union of Rennes 2 University, took over its Twitter account to rant against the Crous Brittany. The association points to the 'drastically reduced' portions served in the university restaurant.

« In Rennes, they even cut small pies in half before putting them on the plates “explains the organization in its tweet. ' So yes, the basic meal is 3.30 euros or 1 euro for scholarship holders, but there is nothing left in it ».

The organization also reveals that the Crous has increased the prices of à la carte products, such as the 'Pastabox'. Same observation for this student in master at the University of Rennes 2 contacted by BFMTV:

« You can see it in things you couldn't see before. When they serve too much, they do not hesitate to remove things. Inevitably, we are hungry earlier, and when we have a long school day, either we will have to take something else to eat, or be hungry until the evening. “, he explained.

Insufficient measures

For his part, the Nupes deputy from Val-de-Marne, Louis Boyard, expressed his anger about the sandwiches offered to the students: “ So these are the reduced-price meals touted by Emmanuel Macron? Bread and three times nothing? And afterwards, we are surprised that the students burst the slab! ».

In a Press release published on September 16, 2022, the Crous de Bretagne recalled that the difficult economic context linked to the rise in inflation had prompted the public establishment to put in place certain measures:

« Thus, the Crous had worked on the recipes to serve the recommended quantities, with a regulatory weight, defined in a precise reference system (GEM-RCN) in order to be adapted to the caloric expenditure of a young adult. “, had indicated the Regional Center for University and School Works Rennes Bretagne.

Before adding: However, it appears that some of them do not appear sufficiently satiating and they will therefore be reviewed. They will not be served again until they are revised ».
