The Staff at The Felix Project say a BIG THANK YOU to their volunteers! 

The Felix Project rescue good, surplus food from the food industry that cannot be sold and would otherwise go to waste. This is high-quality and nutritious, including a high proportion of fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, salads, meat and fish. They collect or receive food from over 500 suppliers, including supermarkets, wholesalers, farms, restaurants and delis.

They then sort and then deliver this food to almost 1000 front-line charities, primary schools and holiday programmes in London. That way, food that would have gone to waste is reaching vulnerable people, homeless, people with mental health or those who simply cannot afford to buy regular, healthy food.

Lucy and her colleagues from The Felix Project tell us how vital their volunteers have been... 

"The impact our volunteers have is invaluable! We reach 260,000 Londoners every week thanks to them. The food we provide is not just about a hot meal, it's about the wrap around-support, the community and educational opportunities it creates.

Our volunteers bring so much to The Felix Project. Each has their own story, interests and skills; all united by our core mission to fight food waste and food hunger in London. Every day is an opportunity to learn.

2021 has been a year full of challenges. Yet, thanks to our incredible team of volunteers, The Felix Project has not only continued on it's fight against food waste and food poverty but we have grown! This year, we have saved more food and reached more Londoners!"
