The Felix Project is a London-based, UK-registered Charity with No. 1168183.
We rescue surplus food from the food industry and deliver it to almost 1000 frontline charities, primary schools and holiday programmes to help feed local communities.
In order to operate as efficiently as possible, we use volunteers as much as we can and try to secure services for free whenever we can. All of our food is delivered or rescued free of charge.
We currently have over 450 active volunteers in London fulfilling an essential role for The Felix Project – without whom we simply wouldn’t be able to operate.
Inevitably we do still have to spend money to enable us to operate our depots, fuel and maintain our vans and grow our reach so we can save more food and impact more people. We rely on people like you to raise the funds we need.
We are proud to keep a high spend efficiency, with 90p in every £1 we spend going to rescuing good food from being wasted and delivering it to charities feeding vulnerable people in London.
In 2018, we spent £1,155,000 in charitable expenses, and £130,000 in Fundraising activities.
The Felix Project seeks to constantly improve its service to donors, supporters and members of the public and ensure our policy adheres to best practices. Therefore, we regard complaints as an opportunity for us to reflect on our processes and practices and identify opportunities for us to strengthen and improve them.
