Radio Presenter Fearne Cotton Visits The Felix Project

Tues 28 November 2023

Fearne Cotton spent time at the charity’s Park Royal depot in West London, where she learned about the charity and how they save good food and give it to those in need.

Fearne was shocked by how the amount of perfectly edible food that could have been thrown away if The Felix Project was not there to rescue it.

“It was amazing – so much delicious food, fresh vegetables like aubergines, tomatoes and cabbage, then there was bread, meat and even profiteroles! All of it was perfect and should be being eaten, especially when so many people are finding really it tough and cannot afford even the basics. It was fascinating to learn more about surplus food and find out how The Felix Project is ensuring that people get to eat it rather than it being wasted.

Fearne also met some of the regular volunteers, who deliver and sort the food in the depots. The Felix Project would not be able to run without our thousands of volunteers generously donating their time. She added: “They were all so lovely and genuinely passionate about what they were doing, it was heart-warming to hear their stories and find out what a difference they make to the charity but also how giving their time helps them personally.”
