1.9 million tonnes of avoidable food waste is generated by the UK food industry each year. At the same time food poverty is a huge and growing problem, almost 4 million children in the UK live in households that struggle to afford to buy enough fruit, vegetables, fish and other healthy foods.

The Felix Project provides a free door-to-door service to collect surplus food from suppliers, and deliver it to charities. We provide food for nearly 3 million meals per year, and our operation is growing rapidly. From a standing start in 2016, we currently work with around 200 charities and 200 suppliers helping disadvantaged adults and children get access to high quality food.

"We love the Felix Project. Without the fresh produce, it would limit the service we could offer our guests quite significantly."

Kizzy Anderson, Refuge Support Worker, Housing for Women

"Volunteering has enabled me to obtain a good understanding of what happens to unwanted food from wholesalers and retailers in an urban environment. I would like to think that the support that I have given, big or small, has benefited someone somewhere."

Winston Gordon, Volunteer

"Nutritional foods have always been very important for people with HIV. Now having the Felix Project means we can have a wide variety and range of meals every day."

Raj Sutra, Support & Development Worker, The River House Trust

"We've donated to the Felix Project for some time now and find them really easy to work with. You'd barely know the arrangement was in place once you've got into a routine."

Tim Richards, Deputy Branch Manager, Waitrose
