London has a hunger problem -and we are tackling it head on.
The Felix Project is a London charity working with businesses to rescue their good quality surplus food - food that would otherwise go to waste - and deliver it free of charge to hundreds of local charities and schools in London to help children and families, the elderly, the homeless, and more.
“ Life is getting very expensive. I can’t afford all the bills. Without this service, we’d be eating food from the rubbish bins. ”
Last year we rescued more food and delivered more meals than ever before: 32 million meals to 1,119 community organisations and over 170 schools across every London borough, most of which are supporting those living in the top fifth most deprived areas in London.
Yet we know 89% of the organisations we support say they expect to see an increase in demand for food services this year, making our deliveries vital.
Now more than ever, we need your help.
78p in every £1 is spent directly on our mission to rescue and deliver surplus food for people in need. We run a huge logistics operation spanning four warehouses, one kitchen, one green scheme and hundreds of vans. Over 800 amazing volunteers work tirelessly 6 days a week to fight hunger and food waste, which keeps the running of Felix as efficient as possible.
