Right now, millions of people in the UK regularly experience hunger. Yet tonnes of fresh food are thrown away every day. Inspired by Felix, we set out to change this. No one should have to miss a meal.
In our capital city, thousands of children go to school hungry each morning. Young mothers skip meals to feed their families. Elderly people are malnourished and those with a mental illness are often ignored.
The Felix Project collects fresh, nutritious food that cannot be sold. We deliver this surplus food to charities and schools so they can provide healthy meals and help the most vulnerable in our society.
Volunteers are a absolutely vital part of our operations but, following an incredible response over the last few weeks, we are unable to accept new applications at this time. Our most immediate need amongst this crisis is raising funds to help us cover the increased cost of our expanded operations. If you can, please join our #FeedLondon appeal. Otherwise, you can sign up to our newsletter below to learn when new opportunities open and other ways to help us fight hunger in London.

“ We get fresh produce. It’s like it’s off the farm because the quality of the food is so good and so fresh! ”, Resident, Housing for Women
“ There is great camaraderie in the team and whether I'm out in the van as a co-driver or helping in the warehouse, I finish my shift with a smile on my face. ”, Volunteer
“ I volunteer as a co-driver at least twice a week and feel so privileged and so happy to work with the best team of people from many different backgrounds, nationalities and professions. This is a most fulfilling and heart-warming new chapter in my life. ”, Volunteer
“ The charities all rely on us, and I know this personally as I work for one of the charities we deliver to. I cook the food on Tuesday that Felix deliver on a Monday. The job needs doing and I’m very happy to be a part of Felix. ”, Volunteer
London’s three biggest food redistribution charities partner to provide an emergency response service for the capital.
We get to spend some more time together, but doing something different that breaks with our routine -and certainly better than just sitting watching telly all the time!
