Fundraise at School This Year


There are tons of ways to tie in fundraising for The Felix Project with the curriculum and we want to make sure that you and your community get an all-round experience as part of the Felix community.

WHAT WE OFFER SCHOOLS & PUPILS

Assembly

Education

As part of the Schools Fundraising Programme, we offer assemblies with schools who are fundraising for us. We want to educate children about food waste and its environmental impact, as well as what we do as a charity to alleviate these issues.

This can include:

  • Challenge Events – The London Marathon Events holds The Big Half and The Little Half around springtime. These running events are fundraising activities open to the family and school.
  • Volunteering – we rely on our volunteer workforce to operate. Volunteer shifts are available in our two outer London depots, and in our Central London operation, and are flexible to fit around other commitments. This activity is open to anyone aged 16+.

Parent Experience

When it comes to school fundraising, it does not just mean engaging with your pupils; it also means engaging with the parents, who are a part of your school’s community too. This includes:

  • Challenge Events – there are several challenge events during the year for parents to get the family involved in that help The Felix Project.
  • Volunteering and Newsletters – we welcome parents to come and join the volunteers and deliver food to schools.

October 2020 world food week: go-green-for-felix

Go Green

In tribute to World Food Day on the 16th October, we asked our younger food waste heroes to ‘GO GREEN’ for Felix.  With over 20 schools involved with this initiative, we saw many activities undertaken; from non-uniform days to holding ‘GO GREEN’ poster competitions, to non-waste baking days. It was great to see so much originality from pupils across all schools who are at the core of The Felix Family. 

Over £6k was raised, which means over 36,600 meals were saved from going to landfill – helping to save our planet and helping communities across London to access nutritious food during the winter period.
