Carrefour: OOShop - Supermarché
Sponsored by Carrefour this online store is outstanding with both price information and supporting pictures of many, many products. There is also a section with recipes and food/health articles with product tie-in links - Le Mag. I like to browse via magasin par rayon. There is a pull-down menu that allows you to switch between icons and small photos that makes the page look more like a grocery circular.  (This site is the basis for the above activity.)

BONNEAU L'Artisan Boulanger Pâtissier
This website has become something of an addiction.  It's a boulangerie in Paris where you can follow their daily baking on their webcam.  In addition to the live cam, there are galleries of photos including baked goods for special occasions and holidays.

Fête du pain
This website has areas for adults and children.  All focus on bread but via a variety of different activities, games and historical information.  There is also a photo album of the actual Fête du pain from years past featuring pictures from regions throughout France.

Santé Canada: Le Guide Alimentaire
This explains the Canadian equivalent of the food pyramid - the food rainbow. Includes nice charts with descriptions along with a downloadable version of the materials.

Mairie d'Aix-en-Provence 
Includes happenings in the city but also has information for people living there. For example, La Vie Practique includes information on schools - including the menu for a month. (This site is the basis for the above activity.)

Juvisy-sur-Orge: La Restauration Scolaire
This French school menu seems to be updated more frequently than the one from Aix – although the format isn’t quite as nice.

La Ville de Lisses
Here is one more school menu to work with.
