This Volunteers' Week, we've been asking our volunteers what they would say to others who are thinking about volunteering with The Felix Project.
“ The people you meet, both staff and other volunteers, are friendly and welcoming and are passionate about diverting food from land fill to hungry tummies. Just get stuck in and feel part of helping communities ”
“ I enjoy meeting kindred spirits and having a good workout ”
Meet Dana, volunteer co-driver and walker, whose favourite food is anything with hummusRead more
Green scheme volunteers had a free lift from a London cab driver at the end of their shift when they told him about The Felix ProjectRead more

“ It's made me more mindful of the food I may waste at home and grateful for what I have ”
“ If you've never experienced the fun of chopping the ropey ends off a crate of spring onions you don't know what you're missing! Felix is varied, challenging, rewarding, hard work but extremely satisfying ”
“ You'll love it ”
“ A friendly and interesting place to spend some of your free time with the added benefit that you are helping people in need. I highly recommend giving it a try ”
“ It's life enhancing fun ”
“ It's a way to simultaneously reduce food waste and provide those who are in desperate need with a decent meal for the night. It's a great way to do your bit in a short amount of time ”
“ Would you like to do something that would help others less fortunate than yourself? Then why not try the Felix Project - they take food that is otherwise going to be discarded and re-distribute it to various charities in the London area. ”
With a little help from our friends...
