Mathieu Dechêne pulls his latest creation out of the industrial oven, and the smell of spicy tomato sauce fills the room. He calls the casserole “Italian rice.” He’s used to being creative with donated vegetables.

“I don’t have anything in my family that would have predisposed me to homelessness. I was educated, I came from a good family and I had worked since I was 16, but these things can happen,” he says. He started using drugs and resorting to petty theft while at university, to finance his habit and to pay production expenses for a rap album. In a few years, he was on the street.

Some names have been changed and family named omitted in order to protect the privacy of Le Marginal’s clientele.
