Created by the city of Lyon in 2007, Délice gathers today 31 cities over 4 continents. Each Délice member has its own specificity, approach and culture, bringing the strength to the network.



Due to the Covid-19 global crisis, the event that was set to take place in Lyon next may has been canceled. 

Mérida, the food capital of Yucatan, Mexico, will host the Annual General Meeting, from October 27-29. This exceptional gathering will be the occasion to discuss "The Social Power of Food: Building Capacities & Empowering Communities".
