All the fun of the festival, at Daylesford organic farm

By Lily and John

Daylesford organic farm in idyllic Gloucestershire countryside threw open its gates for a Summer festival at the beginning of June, and The Felix Project was delighted to be there.

Daylesford have been giving surplus food to The Felix Project for over two years and when they invited us to the festival, we jumped at the chance to spread the word about stopping food waste and reducing food poverty.

Felix volunteers pitched a stall between the vintage car display and market garden and had a great time meeting new volunteers and food suppliers. The contacts we made share a passion for good food and were enthusiastic about The Felix Project’s simple model of redistributing surplus to charities providing community kitchens, food parcels and snacks.

All in all, a long but happy day among new friends and supporters (and sheepdog trials, big tree climbing, cookery and crafts demonstrations, and beautiful farm animals to admire including an enormous Aberdeen Angus bull!). We’re already looking forward to the next opportunity to celebrate our partnership together, when we return for  Daylesford’s Harvest Festival in the Autumn.
