When do the refuges stop providing food and water?

I am planning to hike the GR20 sarting around September 16 or 17. Can I really count on the refuges for water and / or food all the way to the end of Septembre? I want to go as lite as possible so I am counting on being able to buy food on a daily basis.

Usually the refuges are staffed and supplied until the end of September. So you should be ok. If the weather is fine and hikers keep coming, they might stay open a little longer. But nothing is set in stone on the GR20.
