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.




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.


In-School Experience

For any school event planned, donate a % of the proceeds to The Felix Project.

  • Bake-sales;
  • Go-Green-for-Felix Days;
  • Zero-waste bake-offs;
  • And much more!

Outside of School Experience

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.

Upcoming Events

World Food Week: Go Green For Felix!

Microsoft Teams image 1

In tribute to World Food Day on Friday 16th October, we're asking you to GO GREEN for Felix!

Mandatory: Donate £2 to Felix and hold a non-uniform day at school, by wearing all-green for the day.

Optional: GO GREEN all week long from 12th - 18th of October. Going green doesn’t just mean dressing up in Felix’s iconic colour. Going green means reducing your environmental footprint and helping the planet. There are many ways you could do this i.e. walk, cycle, or scoot to school. Hold a zero-waste bake-off. Create eco-friendly IOUs in return for donations to The Felix Project e.g. make a delicious zero-waste meal for the family, only using ingredients available to you from your kitchen.
