The Felix Project is an innovative project that aims to tackle food waste and food poverty in London.
The project collects good quality food from suppliers, that would otherwise go to waste, then delivers it to charities so they can give vulnerable people a healthy meal or snack.
By collecting surplus food from suppliers including supermarkets and wholesalers and delivering it local charities and projects, The Felix Project is reducing food waste, reducing food poverty, supporting local charities, and supporting the local community.
Since launching in 2016, The Felix Project has grown from a handful of volunteers and one van to 250 volunteers, 10 vans and 10 full-time staff, delivering 10 tonnes of food a week, which charities use to supply 20,000 meals.
In total, there are more than 800 collections a month from 94 suppliers, and 851 deliveries to 122 charities.
If you would like to support The Felix Project, the organisation is looking for volunteers to help collect and deliver food, or you can donate. For more information, visit The Felix Project website.
