FOOD REDISTRIBUTION CHARITY IN LONDON FIGHTING FOOD WASTE AND HUNGER

1.5 million adults in London struggle to afford to eat every day, 400,000 children are at risk of missing the next meal. Meanwhile, our food industry generates almost 2 million tonnes of good, edible surplus food each year.

The Felix Project is a London-based food redistribution waste charity set up in 2016 to tackle both issues.






GOOD FOOD FOR GOOD CAUSES

DSC9204

We 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. We collect or receive food from over 170 suppliers, including supermarkets, wholesalers, farms, restaurants and delis.

We then sort and then deliver this food to over 350 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.

INSPIRED BY FELIX

Felix Byamshaw 150X150
This is my son Felix, who died suddenly from Meningitis in 2014. Felix was full of compassion for those without his advantages and, in early 2015, I was searching for a way to commemorate him. What stuck in my mind was a boys’ football tournament, he’d played in. Felix told me he’d been upset to learn that many of the 10-year-old boys on the opposing team hadn’t had anything to eat that day. Justin Byam Shaw
